Devotional Readinga Isaiah, 26 ~I-~ NOT' AIIL choices are worth los- qhg sleep over. What tie ~hall ~sar today ? Shall ! drive to town by'the old .road or the new road? W,h'at shall I give Grandpa for his birthday? The results of these choices are not likely to be world- shattering one way or the other. Still, they might be more impor- tant than you thimk. If you pick the wrong tie, the right girl may turn you down, for the reason that anybody who would wear a monstrosity like that couldn't Dr. Foreman have much sense. If you take the new road to town, some of the new traffic may give you a funeral sooner than you expected. And If Grandpa happens to ~e very rich, the wrong kind of present might induce him to change hi~$Nvilk Oooiolenz Determine D tiny There are great choices in life as well as small. Looking back over a long life, an old man can see where this decision or that changed the whole direction of his life- time. A. train crossing Missouri approaches a little station where it will not stop. There is a long siding at that station, and it is empty. The express train could just as well be sent through the station on the siding as on the main track, they are both going in the same direction. But coming out of Union Station in St. Louis, with its maze of switches--that is another proposition. All trains head out o~f that station in exactly the same Way, but when they hit th6se switches, they are turned once for all--westward to the Pacific Coast cities, or east to New York~ or south to New Orleans. So it is with life. Some decisions turn life toward. $~ destiny of glory, or of :misery o , , depending on ~he choice . . o depending o~ the one who chooses, It was so when Moses said to his people: "I have set be- fore you life and good, and death and evil.., therefore choose good." "Onoe To Ever}, end Nation" 'Once to every man and nation comes the moment to decide," wrote James Russell Lowell in what is now a well-known hymn. "Opportunity knocks but once," is an old proverb. Hymn and proverb are partly true, partly not. When an opportunity for decisiof~ has been ignored, or when the wrong choiee has been made (and ignor- ing the choice entirely is itself a wrong choice), that particular op- portunity, that one decision, does not come again. What one has lost by wrong decision is lost for good. Bu~ in the mercy of God there may be other times. The nation of Israel, to whom Moses made his appeal to decide for God, again and again had to make that same choice: Who is on the Lord's side ? When we think of how one gener- ation follows another, we see how true it is. Our forefathere may have decided for God; but unless we in our time face and act on that same central choice; For God, or against him? our ancestor's good cholc~ will not help ua a ~at deal. Ileekgronnd br Deeioion ~o choice, whether that of a man or a nation, is made in a vacuum, A man makes the good choices, or the bad ones, of his life, aga)~tst all ~he background of his egrlier life, education and train- .in{[.
