Choose Life

Inspired by Deuteronomy 30, Matthew 5 and the Trainspotting advert

Choose life.

Choose justice.

Choose mercy.

Choose welcome.

Choose to resolve conflict;

Choose agreement over anger;

Choose peace and understanding;

Choose to greet your enemy in friendship;

Choose to listen,

to share,

to resolve,

to walk together through life’s trials

and reconciliation’s.

 

Choose a partner;

be faithful in what you think and in what you do.

Choose commitment.

Choose wholeness,

Choose two eyes and two hands,

Choose a life well lived.

Choose honesty;

Choose truthfulness where Yes is Yes

and No means No.

Be known for speaking the truth

for sharing God’s foolish wisdom.

Choose fellowship and seeking God,

finding who you are

and where you stand in all creation.

 

Choose creative living,

full of possibilities and opportunities;

Live a life that others can look back on and declare.

“It is good.”

Choose a community transformed

by love and grace and justice and mercy.

Choose your future.

Choose our future.

Choose a future for the world you inhabit,

Choose life ….

the life that God holds out before you

this day and every day.
