Lao-Tze, legendary Chinese philosopher, expanded this idea: “Watch your thoughts, they become words. Watch your words. They become actions. Watch your actions. They become habits. Watch your habits, they become character. Watch your character. It becomes your destiny.” We need to be careful about the choices we make; they may well determine our future.
Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living (Romans 6:16).
