We have many opportunities in our lives to act with courage: when we see a customer abuse a sales clerk or server; when we see people treat immigrants or new citizens without respect; when some go hungry while others eat with gusto.
We can correct our small transgressions. We can speak to a newcomer at church who is standing by herself at hospitality. We can phone a lonely, yet long-winded, acquaintance. We can hand a homeless person a dollar or donate to a worthy charity.
“He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” Micah 6:8
How do you “do justice?”
