“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Sirach 15:16-18




He has placed fire and water before you;

reach out and take whichever you want.

You have a choice between life and death;

you will get whichever you choose.


The Lord’s wisdom and power are great

and He sees everything.


– Sirach 15:16-18 (GNT)






The choice is mine.


How do I know I’m making the right choice?

Fundamental choices have remained the same over time,

and so has the question:

do we seek God or do we give into the allures of the world?


At times, the choice can be clear-cut;

at times, the choice can be murky.

If we seek God’s will,

the advice of the wise

and the peace of conscience

over the passions of desire,

we can be assured that we made the best choice we possibly could.

And, in most cases, we will have made the right choice.






Lord, help me do Your will

and say a determined “no” to my passionate desires.
