Every now and then I come across a sign with extraneous markings that raise questions for me. In a local grocery store I came across the following:
I am so used to making so many choices every day, that signs like this push me to ask "as opposed to what?" Where in this store is it not my choice?
Where in life is it not my choice?
Jesus said, "You did not choose me, but I chose you." (John 15:16) Among all the decisions I make each day, the most I can say about my faith is that I decided (or not) to live up to my identity in Christ. There are some things in life for which I did not go shopping, and which lay out the parameters for the choices I do make.
Of course, in the grocery store there was at least one other sign that did not offer a choice.
