Jeaus is

the real thing,

THE

CHOICE  

I win.

More Information More Choices You Win

 

Everyone seems to be in competition for everyone's business these days. Insurance companies, hospitals, doctors, cell phone companies, and even phone directory companies seem to put forth every effort to get us to use their goods and services. 

 

I noticed a new ad on a billboard in town last week. It was for the Bell South Yellow Pages, “The Real Yellow Pages” not to be confused with the fake yellow pages I suppose.  The sign said, “More information, more choices, you win.” My first thought was, “What do I win?” Then I thought about a phone directory, something I would never have thought about that day if I hadn’t seen the sign. The ad must have worked.  It made me want to rush home and throw out any fake yellow pages that were on the premises.  I wanted to win.

 

We all use a phone book from time to time. We pick it up, look up a number, and find the number. We put the book, real or fake, back where it came from.  What more information is in there? What can we possibly win, other than finding the number we were looking for in the first place?

 

I drove along and thought of the sign. I thought of other books I could put on the billboard that would make much more sense than a phone directory.  How about a Bible?  More Information, More Choices, You Win.  It would be great to put the Bible on people’s minds as they passed by the billboard.  There is a lot of information in the Bible, all we ever need. I know those who read the Bible, believe it, and accept its promises to be true win.

What about choices? What choices are in the Bible?

God gives us many choices we can make as to how we live our lives everyday. He gave us a free will.

 

We can choose evil or good, blessing or cursing, life or death.

 

 

Deuteronomy 30:19

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.

 

We must choose who we will serve.  

 

Joshua 24:15

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD,choose you this day whom ye will serve;

 

We should choose to do only those things that delight the Lord.

 

Isaiah 66:4

I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.

 

The Bible also tells us we should know what choice to make. We should know

what is good and should choose it.

 

Job 3 4

Let us choose to us judgment: let us know among ourselves what is good.

Isaiah  7:15

Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.

 

My day was brightened by the bright yellow billboard with the real yellow book.  

It made me smile and made me think of choices.

It made me glad that

someone once chose to inform me that

 

Jesus is

the real thing,

THE

CHOICE  

I win.
