What is your legacy; what will you leave behind when the time comes for you to enter eternity?
Moses inaugurates Joshua to lead, and he challenges him to choose life which is really to choose God and His ways. He didn’t challenge him to work harder, be stronger, or any of that but to choose life! Choose life so that you and your descendants may live! [Deut 30:19] Follow God, choose Him, and honor Him. Then he added to that, be strong and courageous, for he knew what lay ahead.
What is your legacy today? Have you chosen life? Moses told Joshua that this is not too hard for you; it is not that you have to go and search for it across the world or go to heaven. But, it is front and center before you. Love the Lord your God, walk in his ways, and obey his commandments, his statutes, and his ordinances. Then you will live. That is the choice before us today as well and one we want to leave to our children.
Choose life! Love God! Obey God!
