    Again we read;

    Deuteronomy 30:19-20 (KJV)

    [19]  I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: [20]  That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.

    And again;

    Deuteronomy 30:19-20 (NASB) 

    [19]  “I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your *descendants, [20]  by loving the LORD your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for *this is your life and the length of your days, *that you may live in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”


    Notice the difference in the transition from verse 19 to 20.

    Choose life ... By loving the Lord your God. Loving is doing not just saying, it requires some kind of action. If we love God we love the brethren as well (1Jn 4:21). In fact the Royal Law of Love, the Law of the New Testament encompasses all the laws of the Old Testament. While we fulfill the Law of Love we fulfill all the other laws of God. (Rom 13:10)

    Choose the way of Love. Remember Love never fails, God is Love, He never fails, and He never changes.

    The way of Love is the most excellent way, not always the easiest but always the best. It is always the Blessed Way; after all it is Gods way. 

    Read 1Cor. 13:4-8 (or the whole chapter). Decide and declare that the attributes of Love are yours. Decide, choose and declare that's who you are, who you will become and how you will act.

    Choose your way. Decide the day.
