A Right Choice

July 21st, 2009

Heb 11:24-27 (27)

My parents faithfully took me to see Dr. Martin, the family dentist. Even as a five-year-old, the sound of the drill, the smell of the silver and paste, and the atmosphere of the office were familiar.

Dr. Martin was more than the family dentist. He was our friend. He treated me like someone special. This probably is why I developed an interest in being a dentist. Dr. Martin found out about this. He was enthusiastic in his encouragement. “Gayle,” he said, “I have another complete equipped room. If you go to school and become a dentist you can come back here and I will have a place for your in my business.” That cinched it.

I had every intention of becoming a dentist. That was to change. God spoke to me in my senior year of high school. At that time I knew that I had a choice to make. I could obey Him and preach the gospel or I could reject Him and do what I wanted.

When you love God, it really isnt much of a choice. You simple do what is pleasing to him. Some may think that Moses decision was a tragedy. They may think that his sacrifice was great. In reality, nothing is a sacrifice when you are giving it up to obey the Lord.
