─ Deuteronomy 30:19
Vicky heard his cries and raced toward the sound. Oh no, what has he done now, she thought.
She found him sitting on the floor whimpering, his fingers caught in the spokes of his older brother’s bicycle. She pushed away the urge to scold him, for the moment, and began to work his fingers loose from the spokes.

There are always two paths before you – God’s way of obedience or the way of rebellion and destruction. Each choice you make is a decision for life and blessing, or death and destruction. Choose God’s path each day.
