Title : 2/18
passage : Deuteronomy 30: 15-20.
passagePhrase : See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, death and adversity. If you obey the commandments of your God…by loving God, walking in God’s ways...then you shall live…and God will bless you…But if your heart turns away and you do not hear…you shall perish.

The words today are profound, yet the message is simple. Follow God’s commandments and you will live, but turn your heart away and you perish. That makes sense, right? But the almost forceful command in this passage is “Choose life so that you may live.” Jesus Christ is life. Yesterday, Ash Wednesday, we renewed our baptismal promises, and in that way we chose life, we chose Jesus Christ. Every step of this Lenten journey we remember that at the end Jesus must die. But there is new life and a new beginning in the Resurrection. Perhaps for your Lenten journey you have decided to “give something up,” like a New Year’s resolution. Maybe this year, instead of giving up chocolate for the tenth year in a row, you can “choose life” for a daily Lenten activity – smile, hold the door, help someone or listen to them. All these life-giving activities are a way to celebrate our life through Jesus, our Savior.
