Choices and Consequences

By Rusty @russellpurkiss
Every person has free choice. Free to obey or disobey the Natural Laws. Your choice determines the consequences. Nobody ever did, or ever will, escape the consequences of his choices. — Alfred A. Montapert

I believe that we have been placed on earth through this gift given to us of life, to make our own personal choices, the majesty of choice. The God of the universe has set things up in such a way that not even He will intervene to change things around (unless you call him and ask Him) to avoid the consequences of our actions.  Well, I wouldn’t want to be God, he gives this great gift of life, the chance to make good and when things don’t go quite the way we think they ought to we get all P.O.-ed at Him! Parenting is hard enough, imagine being God! No thanks!

Choices and Consequences
It is a great gift we have, a privilege, honor and trust bestowed upon man in that we have been given this life and we can make free choices.  But what a lot of people tend to forget is the fact that when they make certain choices, that there will be a consequence.  If you over eat, you will begin to gain weight, if you do not exercise you will become weak, if you over do it with alcohol, over the counter drugs,take up smoking or engage in unhealthy sexual practices you could call upon yourself undesirable illness that can take this gift of life away.

Now, take a look at how things are going on the global scene and in our country.  Not so good! Stock market reeling, debt ceiling on the rise, jobs are hard to come by.  Everyone is playing the blame game, but what really lies behind this whole mess we are all finding ourselves participants and victims of  is non other the consequences of the selfishness and money hunger of a large group of people.  Yes I know, it may be convenient to blame the Democrats because they are in office now, and the Democrats are clambering that it all started with the Republicans when they held office, but do you really  believe that it has all that much to do with those who end up as figureheads of government.  Not that much tends to change in the end regardless of who is in office, and why might that be? I believe that at the end of the day it really doesn’t matter if the person who is running for President has all the great ideas and promises in the world that they are going to turn things around, and they may be truly sincere people wanting to the very best for their country, but actually those who hold the financial reigns are he ones that steer the ship.

Money and wealth can be a real blessing, but it can be an awful curse. The Bible tells us that it is the love of money that is the root of all evil, and we are all suffering at the hands of people who have such a lust for money that they are willing to do anything to get more.  The whole Wall Street debacle resulted in a mere hand slap and then the culprits went right back doing as they have always done, who gains and who pays in the end?  It is a sad day but we are now in the middle of great consequences that we are all feeling the reverberations of, thanks to a group of greedy individuals who really are not interested in your well-being.

Be careful what choices you make in your life, they could have negative consequences that might not only involve you!  No man is an island, we all have an effect on those around us. Don’t allow selfishness to take root in your life that you grow calloused to the needs of those around you!

This post depicts the meaning of my header, there are many doors that you can choose to enter into, each one has something awaiting behind it just for you!  What will you choose?
