Corrupt choices

The natural inclination of man is to seek for something. But the problem lies with his choices: often, he prefers the temporary to the eternal, the worldly to the Godly, the bad to the good. But that is who man is--a being whose choices are corrupt because his very mind, the means through which he creates these preferences, is also rotten with corruption.

And so the natural man does not seek for God. It is God who seeks him. And this is one glorious truth about grace: that when we were still dead to spiritual things, God has decided, out of His sovereign will (and not because we earned His favor), to seek for us. When He has sought us, our eyes were opened and our choices directed to what is the good, holy and perfect will of God.

Amazing grace!
