Thought for the Day:
“During an Election, we really don't choose a Republican or Democrat, a conservative or liberal. We choose a leader.” -Rudy Giuliani
“Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD." -- Joshua 24:15
Yesterday, millions of people in the United States casted their votes for a slate of political leaders, including our governor. After months of campaign speeches, television ads, and debates, each voter has the opportunity to say to one candidate, “I choose you.”
Not everyone’s favorite will win, but every voter has a choice.
Unlike a political election in which the majority rules, each of us is given the opportunity to select our personal leader each day. In the spiritual election deep within our hearts, our choice will stand no matter what others may decide.
After many years in the Promised Land of Canaan, the aged Joshua called the people of Israel together and issued this challenge:
In Joshua 24:15 says, “If it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord”
