“…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 will you and I and the church be remembered? What legacy shall we leave? How will we respond to God’s call in our time and place?
Today God’s people who are called to do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with God still fail, choosing “me and my own first.” I know, because I also fail in this.
“Do justice, love kindness, walk humbly?” I’m zero for three. Might as well forget it.
But Micah’s prophecy has one more message for me (and for all of us): Our lives are not over. It may feel overwhelming or too late. But look–we’re moving! There’s hope. Why should you or I or the church quit before we’re done?
This message is an excerpt from “Micha’s legacy” by Meghan Johnston Aelabouni in the September 2017 issue of Gather magazine.
