Choices

Joseph
Life is made up of choices.
Man has been given the freedom to choose.
One may not be able to choose circumstances, but he can choose how to respond to those circumstances (Matt.25:26,27)

God will judge us according to our works, that is according to the choices we have made in life (Rev.20:12)

Choices involve acceptance and rejection; acceptance of good and rejection of evil. Those who choose good receive favor, but those who choose evil invite trouble (Pro.11:27).
