Twenty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time (Homily)

Decide today, whom you will serve. I recently read that the average adult makes about 35,000 decisions each day. I don't know how accurate that number is, but it does make me wonder how many of those decisions are made consciously, and of those that are, what's the state of the individual's mind in making them.
We know we need to make an examination of conscious before approaching the Sacrament of Confession, but how often to we really examine our conscious and what's the basis of that exam? Along with that, do we purposely form our conscious with the mind of the Church? So when faced what might appear to be a difficult decision, we can make that choice with peace or do we turn to social influences seeking to be politically correct or appear to be open minded?
