Today people of all ages seem to have more choices than ever before. How do you know you are making a right choice?

There seems to be a current philosophy in America that says times are changing and so we must change with the times. Why?

What is your current standard for making decisions and right choices? Is it an earthly judge’s decision that says the law is thus and so? Or do you have a higher standard: God’s standard?

One issue now is same-sex marriage. If I may, I will give you my view. You are welcome to your own. I believe same-sex marriage is a sin and is wrong in God’s eyes if it is as stated in Leviticus 18:22 and Romans 1:22-32.

Today it seems that many raise their voices to do what pleases them and persistently insist they have their own way. In many cases, choices, in my view, are wrong morally and/or spiritually, and I believe weakens the morality of America and the world.

I believe God has kept Americans atop the world in many ways because we gave our allegiance to him. Are we now slipping away from righteousness? Are we now engaged more in what pleases us than what pleases God?

Finally, we are all sinners and fall short of the glory of God. I believe one of the best ways to honor God is to repent of our sins, be baptized and proclaim Jesus as our Lord and savior, receiving the Holy Spirit that helps us make the right choices.

In the 120 years or less you have to live, how much of the 1,440 minutes each day do you spend planning for eternity? I do hope you are planning to meet God. He is planning to meet you.
