Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
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
