When Joshua was advanced in years, he called Israel together to admonish and remind them not to stray from their covenant with God. (Joshua 23:1-6) He spoke of a defining time, a time to choose and said, “If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15)
In like manner today, individuals, CEOs and corporate boards are making choices to follow their convictions and making them known to the public at large. Many have chosen to follow God’s Word like Dan Cathy, President of Chick-Fil-A. He recently said that his company was “guilty as charged” for backing “the biblical definition of a family.” He and his company are being criticized and ridiculed by mega corporations such as Amazon, Microsoft, Starbucks and many others who support gay marriage.
