Choose blessing over cursing

Each and every day situations arise that test our character and fire up our emotions: jealousy, envy, anger, resentment, greed, lust, vindictiveness, revenge and hatred are but a few of those that float around in our heart. If we ruminate on those emotions we'll ultimately choose death over life; we'll choose cursing over blessing.

God asks us to follow Him and choose life and blessing instead of death. This choice is not easy- it requires an immense inner discipline.

How are you doing right now in training your discipline?

Deuteronomy 30:19
I call Heaven and Earth to witness against you today: I place before you Life and Death, Blessing and Curse. Choose life so that you and your children will live. And love God, your God, listening obediently to him, firmly embracing him. Oh yes, he is life itself, a long life settled on the soil that God, your God, promised to give your ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
