Canada’s Finance Minister Jim Flaherty tabled an interim budget preparing for a February 11 Federal election next year. Prime Minister Stephen Harper expects to balance the budget, or even have a surplus in 2015. The question being pondered across the nation is, who can we trust to govern us-Harper, Mulcair or Trudeau? It is a privilege we have to be able to choose. It is an important decision. But the greatest decision of all time is “what are we trusting in to take us into the next life?” In most cases, it is ourselves, our religion, how we live our lives. But the Bible clearly states that it is “not by works of righteousness that we have done, but according to His mercy He saves us.” On election day, we choose a government. In this life, we choose where we will spend eternity. As Joshua urged, “choose you this day whom you will serve.” The choice is ours.
