In Joshua 24:15 we read: “Choose you this day whom ye will serve; … but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Josh. 24:15).
Every day I make choices . I choose what to wear, what to say, what to read and watch, and how to act. The ability to make choices is a gift from Heavenly Father. It is called agency. Using our agency is an important part of Heavenly Father’s plan for me.
Heavenly Father will help me choose the right. I am a child of God, and He wants me to return to live with Him again. I can pray to Heavenly Father anytime, anywhere, and He will bless me with courage to choose the right.
Jesus Christ will help me choose the right. He is “the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6) and the perfect example for me to follow. I will choose the right when I ask myself, “What would Jesus want me to do?”
Remembering Jesus helps me choose the right.
