Two opposing world-views. Two ways of living life. Two patterns for how to operate. Which will you choose? The culture this world teaches one thing and the Word of God teaches the opposite:

“Get ‘er done!” – Larry the Cable Guy 
“The Son  . . . can do only what he sees his Father doing.” – Jesus (John 5:19) 

“Just do it.” – Nike 
“I do nothing without consulting the Father.” – Jesus (John 5:30) 
“Apart from me you can do nothing.” – Jesus (John 15:5) 
“I did it my way.” – Frank Sinatra 
“For I have kept the ways of the Lord.” – David (Psalm 18:21) 
“Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in his ways.” – David (Psalm 128:1) 
“Have it your way.” – Burger King 
“Observe the commands of the Lord your God, walking in his ways and revering him.” – Moses (Deuteronomy 8:6) 
Can you think of others you’d add to this list?
