I was listening to one of the sports channels the other day, and they were advertising a game to blame with your friends called, “Would You Rather?” Honestly, I have never played the game, or had I heard of it before. But it brought some interesting thoughts to mind. So in the privacy of your own life, no one but you around, I have some questions.
Would you rather sig through a church service, or a close football game between your team and their biggest rival? Tell yourself the truth. Which would you actually choose to do?
If you had to choose between one hour in the Presence of God, or three weeks in your favorite vacation place, which would you choose? Really?
If you could choose financial security for your family for the rest of your life, or the opportunity to carry the Gospel to a village in India or Iraq, where they had never heard of Jesus, and know that only one outcast woman would be saved, which would you choose?
If you could give $500 and have two 50 yard line seats for the whole season at your favorite sports venue, or give $500 to an organization fighting the human slave trafficking in our world, which woud you give to?
If you could spend an extra three hundred dollars each month and have a brand new car, or give that same $300 to get your church out of debt, which would you choose?
Would you rather see your football team win the National championship, or see someone saved in church this Sunday, which would you honestly choose?
The truth is, we make these choices every day of our lives, don’t we? What does your calendar and your pocket book say about your commitment level to God?
