Do you know what you want to do tomorrow? What about next week? Or next year?
The gift of making choices about what we will do is called agency. Heavenly Father lets us make choices. Our choices can help us or hurt us. When we use our agency to be obedient, Heavenly Father will bless us. When we are disobedient, we must face the consequences.
The prophet Joshua told the Israelites what he would do with his agency. He made the choice to be obedient He said, “Choose you this day whom ye will serve; … but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15) Joshua told the people he would use his agency to serve the Lord, no matter what.
I am grateful I can make choices about my actions. I will be like Joshua and use my agency to serve the Lord.
