Choosing Sides


     Well I've never been on a jury but I can guarantee you that I would not be the one to cause a hung jury.  I can make a decision.  Too many people are fence sitters and can't choose a side.  You might call it being politically correct or just being wishy-washy.  'If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.'
     This post was sparked by a video tribute I watched honoring Ronald Reagan.  He said, 'We should be cautious about saying God is on our side but instead we should consider whether we are on His side?'  There is a lot of truth in that.  Are the words and actions of our lives building or tearing down the Kingdom?  Are your values firm or easily swayed?  Right is right even if nobody does it and wrong is still wrong even if everybody does it.
     Joshua 24:15  ''But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”
    Mark 3:24-25  '' If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.''
    May you be firm in your faith and convictions and not be tossed about in the cultural winds of society.
