Choose today whom you will serve
(Joshua 24:15; NLT).
1. Consequences flow
From from how I handle
All I feel.
2. Every choice I make
Brings others pain,
Or helps them heal.
3. Every course of action
Leaves me feeling bad,
4. So help me, Lord,
To grow like you,
And choose your Way of Love.
1. You did not reflect on your actions or think about their consequences (Isaiah 47:7; NLT).
2. A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart (Luke 6:45; NLT).
3. When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarrelling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these (Galatians 5:19-21; NLT).
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5:22-3; NRSV).
4. The Lord – who is the Spirit – makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image (2 Corinthians 3:18; NLT).
Follow the way of love (1 Corinthians 14:1; NIV).
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged (1 Corinthians 13:4; NLT).
