How many of you have to make choices every single day? Everybody’s hand should go up. Whether big choices, like what college to attend, or small choices, like what pants to wear today, they are all choices.
I first started thinking about choices when listening to the song “It’s Your Life” by Francesca Battistelli. That is one of my favorite songs of hers. It talks about how the world is watching your choices. Do you ever think you can get away with something because no one is watching and, it turns out, someone is. I think that especially happens as kids. But someone is always watching what choices you make. Here’s the chorus of the song-

It’s your life
What you gonna do?
The world is watching you
Every day the choices you make
Say what you are and who
Your heart beats for
It’s an open door
It’s your life

The chorus is my favorite part of the song. Mainly for the lyrics. I just love the basic truth in the song. Isaiah 30:21 says…

And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.

You will have many choices in your life. It’s your choice to pick the right ones.
