today's other readings are Psalm 1 and Lk. 9: 22-25

It's your call.  So says God to the people of Israel before they make the final part of the passage into the Promised Land, about 1500 BC

3500 years later, God still says the same thing to us:  "It's your call".

And the explanations of the choices laid before the Israelites back then are equally applicable to us.  You can choose God, walking in His ways, observing His commandments and teachings.  Or you can choose the modern days gods of money and fame and the unholy trinity of Me, Myself and I.

Choose to follow God is choosing life.  Which makes it an obvious choice.

But still, it's your call.
