“Today I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Choose life so that you and your descendants may live.”
We choose life when we follow the words and example of Jesus in doing unto others as we would have them do unto us. It’s a simple rule, at least simple in the saying of it...but frequently hard in the doing. Perhaps a few minute’s thoughts about it each day would be a good thing.
