This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19, NIV 1984).
My Musings – Oxymoron, a figure of speech in which apparently contradictory terms appear in conjunction. Like “do nothing.” Here are a few more.
- They were the victims of an apparent burglary, but nothing was “found missing. “
- No one was the least bit surprised, as it was an “open secret.”
- The disturbance caused a “small crowd” to gather.
- He was caught by surprise but did his best to “act naturally.”
- It was a huge disappointment leaving her feeling “fully empty.”
- They were very pleased to have found an “original copy.”
- You are allowed to get “together” as long as you socially “distance.”
- Things began to get out of hand and turned “pretty ugly” in “no time.”
“Life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life.” Because, when it comes down to it, it is the “only choice.”
My Advice – Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6, NIV 1984). The only choice. He has set before you the choice of life or death. Choose life. It’s “one choice” you’ll never regret.
P.S. “Doing nothing” is a choice.
