I never forgot the time I saw my mother working as a volunteer in the Hospice ward. She was feeding patients with HIV/AIDS. Someone said to her, "Are you not worried about being infected by the disease? I wouldn't feed them if I was paid for it."
She smiled graciously and said, "I have chosen to serve Jesus Christ wherever He would send me, doing whatever He gave me to do."
This story speaks volumes to me. Who are you choosing to serve? This challenge is not for tomorrow, next week, or next year; it is a PRESENT challenge----choose you THIS DAY.
Joshua took a definite stand for the Lord. He displayed spiritual leadership. The way we live shows others the strength of our commitment to serving God.
This challenge is a personal one. What would your reply look like? The choice is yours.
