Deuteronomy 30:15-20; Psalm 1:1-4, 6; Luke 9:22-25

Life – death!

Moses gives the people a choice: life or death! Who would not choose life over death? But he reminds them that both choices have their own demands and carry consequences. It was the covenant with God that Moses was referring to. The covenant required that a person’s whole life was dedicated to the love of God: to love God with all your heart, all your mind, all your soul. Choosing life was a choice for life. Lent is a golden opportunity to get life lined up with the covenant.
