Most of the choices we make in life are not binary. Life is full of nuance and alternate options.

Yet, there are key moments when the choice before us represents a choice between self-interest or self-giving. We can stay with the established supports and comforts that we have grown accustomed to. Or we can follow the way of Christ - that continually calls us beyond these bounds.

This is a crucially important decision. A decision that sets the course of a person’s life. It is not one that should be made half heartedly or with inadequate consideration. Neither is it a decision that should be avoided simply because it seems too hard to make.

In life, something will have a primary hold on us. We can find our security in the default ways of our world. Or we can decide there is more life to found in following the way of Jesus and being held in the security of God’s way of self-giving love.
