And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
When you have to make the choice between serving your earthly father and your Father in Heaven, you should always side with God. Make serving God something not only you commit to, but something that your entire household commits to. God will bless you for your efforts and assist you in bearing any consequences that result as your decision to serve him.
