We are living in a day when all that we thought was nailed down is coming apart. Concepts such as truth, goodness, right and wrong are either vanishing or have mutated into functional meaninglessness. Perhaps the most significant, ethically insightful and perfect summary statement is found in the prophet Micah.

 

He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you- But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

 

Notice, there are three aspects addressed that impact humanity.

The Political aspect is seen by the request to "Do Justice."

The Societal aspect is required by "Love Kindness."

The Spiritual aspect is revealed by God's desire for us "to Walk Humbly with your God."

 

I imagine it is troubling for most of us if we mediate on these concepts too long for they perhaps show us areas in our life where we fall short of what the Lord desires from us. But let me ask you, as I ask myself---

Do Justice- Do you live in a way that manifests justice to others?  Are you voting for those who seek to do justice in our political world?

 

Love Kindness- Do I desire to live in a way that seeks God's best for people and selflessly demonstrate the kindness of the Lord to them?   

 

Walk humbly with your God- Do I recognize the greatness of the Lord enough to realize the only proper response is to live with a sense and spirit of humility?

 

This is what the Lord has told us He desires from us.  How will we allow this to impact and alter our lives?

 

Serving Him with you

Until He comes for us,

Fred

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.

Suppose the earth and its inhabitants exist in order to identify just what causes mankind continually to suffer so many troublesome problems and afflictions.

At present, most persons decide to act on whatever happens with their thoughts. But doing so puts them in competition with one of the creator's natural laws first identified by Richard Wetherill.

How?

The answer is not complicated. People must stop basing their behavior on their personal thinking. Instead they have to act on the creator's thoughts, here being described in the English language as rational, honest, and morally right.

No longer should people reason from their concepts of good and evil, right and wrong, likes and dislikes, or whatever else comes to mind. Instead, mankind must think the creator's thoughts. That enables them successfully to do what is rational, honest, and morally right.

That may seem incredible until understood. But, consider that it is the way that mankind can escape the death penalty everybody has been paying since the days that people were created.

Join the survivors who have stopped their personal thinking. They now base their behavior on the creator's guiding thoughts to act in a way that is rational, honest, and morally right.
