But every now and then along comes a situation that sends us to the core of our being and requires a firm declaration of where we'll stand. Like Joshua of old, we are asked to "choose you this day" (Joshua 24:15). And it's usually best if we've ironed out our convictions in advance of the challenge. Either way, we must shut out the "madding crowd" and seek God's face. His Spirit will never lead outside the whole counsel of His Word.
Is the choice you are making today really a hill to die on?
