A gentleman was fascinated with an advertisement he read about a barometer. He thought he would be the envy of his neighbors to have such an instrument at his home. In his mind he imagined them coming to him for weather reports. So he ordered one.
When it arrived, the needle was pointing to “Tornado.” In disbelief, he shook it, slapped it, and waved it from side to side. But the needle remained pointing toward the word “tornado.” In anger, he wrapped it up, took it to the post office and mailed it back to the manufacturer, thinking, “I’ve been cheated!”
As he was returning home he noticed that many trees were overturned with their roots in the air. Buildings were destroyed and power lines down. Damage and destruction was everywhere he looked. Finally, he turned onto the street where he lived and there, before his eyes, was his home that had been completely destroyed. The barometer was accurate: a tornado was approaching.
Many of us fail to realize that there are serious consequences for each decision we make. Every choice, does indeed, have its consequences. However, there is one choice that is more important than any other choice we will ever make: What will YOU do with Jesus?
Prayer: We thank You, Father, for Your salvation that can be ours through Christ, and accept it now. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: 2 Thessalonians 2:13-14 But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth, to which He called you by our gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
