(Pro 13:14 KJV) The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.
When was the last time I chose water, a natural substance, over a man produced concoction? It doesn’t matter if it is coffee in the morning or Coke Zero in the evening, water is not a serious consideration. Would I be healthier if I made “wise” (2450) choices? Probably. I think the same thing often happens in our spiritual lives. We choose what we want rather than what is best.
Physically I have made it past my three score and ten with those choices. Spiritually I don’t think I would be able to say the same because choices have consequences. If I had made better physical decisions I might be out running marathons. If I had made worse spiritual choices I would be bound for Hell.
So? Free will is a burden we are blessed with, or cursed with. Use it wisely.
