BUT.. my family and I will serve the Lord (Joshua 24:14-15)

So now, revere the Lord. Serve Him honestly and faithfully. Put aside the gods that your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates and in Egypt and serve the Lord.
BUT… if it seems wrong in your opinion
 to serve the Lord,
then choose today whom you will serve….
my family and I will serve the LORD.
Joshua 24:14-15    CEB

This is definitely one of those BIG BUTS of the Bible. Who are you serving today? What does serving the Lord look like to you? I find that I have to tell myself this every morning and then sometimes several times throughout the day. It is a CHOICE to put aside the gods that are right before me (my selfish desires) and choose to serve the Lord.
