Joshua 24:1-3a, 15-25

If you read the elided section you will find out the reason for the "therefore" in verse 14.

It turns out that the reason we are to revere some Lord is that they are the uber-colonialist that justifies our own tendencies in that direction. Choose to follow a Lord that provides you with privilege or a Lord that doesn't? Is that a question or just a set-up? Well?

Given the "Therefore" it is no surprise that the "So" is, we choose privilege.

How is it any different in your particular congregation? What benefits the most or the richest is the choice to make. The rest is disposable. All we are really interested in is the degree of discrimination we can comfortably live with.
