Matthew 4:1-11

Now, friends, if you have your Bibles, I would like
for you to turn with me to Matthew 4, and we are
going to take up today the subject, "Making the
Right Choices in Life." In speaking to a group of
Intermediates for a couple of weeks I dealt with
this great matter of CHOOSING in life, making
CHOICES in life, and I received such a blessing from
it myself that I felt I would like to pass it on to

the doctor and they learn about the proper formula
for the milk, and the way to feed him, and how much
he is to sleep, and all the rest of it. A little
infant does not have choices to make.

As we grow older there ARE choices we must make, but
they come upon us gradually. The MAJOR choices come
from our parents. That is the reason why God says,
"Children, obey your parents." Children are
