In my morning devotional today, I was reminded with the wonderful gift of choice God gave to us. Here are some of the points to ponder.
1. God gave it to Adam and Eve in the garden. It is intelligent, thoughtful choice–decision-making–that separates us from the rest of God’s creation.
2. A very precious gift from our Creator. God told them, But the LORD God gave him this warning: “You may freely eat any fruit in the garden Genesis 2:16, and before THE BIG HORRIBLE CHOICE Adam and Eve made to disobey God that we all remember, Adam was putting this gift to work in a productive way: “So the Lord God formed from the soil every kind of animal and bird. He brought them to Adam to see what he would call them, and Adam chose a name for each one.” Genesis 2:19.
3. And of course God has given the gift of choice to you and me also.
