Our lives are a series of choices. We are constantly making choices, both good and bad, and all of our choices have consequences and outcomes. It can be overwhelming to question our choices or wonder if we are doing the right thing.
“Therefore, if you have been raised with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.” – Colossians 3:1
Our choices can be simplified into two categories: the things of God and the things of the world. Choosing the things of God is often challenging, but it yields the best long-term results. Choosing the world can be much easier and can appear to be the best way to avoid pain, but these choices often lead to our destruction.
Choosing God Instead of the World studies the lives of two men, Jacob and Joseph, their families, and the choices they faced. Both Jacob and Joseph were given a specific promise from God, but they lived out their faith very differently. As we study their lives, we will see the importance of choosing the things of God and the way God rewards those who walk with Him. We will also discover how, even if God’s people often made a mess of things, His promises to them never failed.
