“And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
It’s pertinent that you make a choice regarding who you will serve. Will it be human common sense, will it be others around you, or will it be Almighty God? You cannot do both and expect the same outcome. God is the only one who can guarantee a right result every time.
