In this time of incivility and rancor, how should we act?
He has showed you, O man, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8
What does it mean to act justly? It is to treat others rightly.
He (God) defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the alien, giving him food and clothing. And you are to love those who are aliens, for you yourselves were aliens in Egypt. Fear the Lord your God and serve him. Deuteronomy 10:18-20
Stop doing wrong, learn to do right!
Seek justice, encourage the oppressed.
Defend the cause of the fatherless,
plead the case of the widow. Isaiah 1:16-17
What does it mean to love mercy? It is to love others as God loves you.
“My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.” John 15:12
To walk humbly with God is to walk in His way not your own. Then you will be enhancing not subtracting from creation, and pleasing to behold.
