For your consideration……

Life is full of choices, big and small, consequential or seemingly non-consequential. Sometimes we spend a lot of time making them. Sometimes we make them with hardly a thought. How we make those choices, our motivation and where it is coming from is what today’s message is about.

When choices are made from the ego, they can be easily twisted. We have all experienced this both in ourselves and others. We have all witnessed or been the target of the “bully” or mean-spirited person. What are those people’s motive? Why be mean? It is because they do not feel they are in control. They feel powerless. When we feel out of control or powerless, our motivation behind our choices is to regain it. Our choices are influenced and colored.

We are reminded that no one can take our power and control. We are born with it. It is a gift from God. Only we can give it away and only we can take it back.

We are being asked today to be sure that our choices are made from that place that is pure in spirit. We are being asked to make sure we make our choices from that place that is kind and loving. We are asked to make sure that our motivation comes from our authentic self.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.
