"Choose you this day who ye will serve ... ." — Joshua 24:15


You can have anything you want, but you cannot have everything. Adam and Eve chose the tree and lost the garden. David chose Bathsheba and lost his family.

First, decide what you want. Then, you must be willing to pay the price. For whatever you choose, there is a price.

If you have found the price of your choice too high and the results too little, there is good news — you can begin the process of choosing again. You can make another choice, pay the price and reap the benefits.

Just like the prodigal son who found the price of "living it up" too high (it cost all of his inheritance), and the results too little (he ended up in a pig pen). He then chose again and went home to his father. The result of that choice was a home, a robe and a ring, back in his father’s grace.
