John Wilkes Booth became infamous when he assassinated President Abraham Lincoln in 1865. But Booth had a very different older brother, Edwin. While waiting for a train, Edwin saw someone slip and fall off the platform. He quickly rose to the occasion and pulled the man to safety, saving his life. Who was the man he saved? Robert Todd Lincoln, the oldest son of President Lincoln. a soldier in the Civil War. One brother chose to help save a life, the other chose to take a life. The Bible speaks much of choices. In Deuteronomy God said, “I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing, therefore choose life.” Later Joshua wrote, “choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve…” And Paul spoke of life’s greatest choice, writing, “If you will confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Each one of us must make the choice of either eternal life or eternal death.
