It's our personal contract with God. He has distinguished us from all of his creations by this gift. He allowed us to eat of the tree and have knowledge beyond bliss... And true to the character of a benevolent king, the gift of choice does not require belief in His existance - He gives choice equally and freely to all his children!
And, as with all blessings, one bears responsibility to the blessor - to act with humility, seek with earnest, review without bias, and share without expectation. It is here that we stumble with our Christian walk. We forget that which distinguishes us from the grass beneath our feet to the mountain that touches the sky and from the amoeba to the great ape - choice! We forget that, like God, choice is omnipresent and omnipotent. Choice is always available. Choice is all powerful. It is the pathway to true freedom.
Choice is the birth-gift of all humanity bestowed by the Lord.
