Fish: I'm not a nonconformist you see. I just choose to go where there is fresh clean water.

Jeremiah 17:5-8 (NKJV)

Thus says the Lord:
“Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes flesh his strength, Whose heart departs from the Lord. For he shall be like a shrub in the desert, And shall not see when good comes, But shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, In a salt land which is not inhabited.
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, And whose hope is the Lord. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit.

Choices abound… indeed.

I don’t know everything but if the Creator of ALL things lays it out plainly, I think the choice is quite obvious.

God doesn’t force us. His Holy Spirit gently woos and leads us. Like a man pursuing a woman, no true and genuine love could ever be the fruit of coercion.

It is in one’s power to choose, but choose wisely.
