The Rubber Meets the Road

Micah 6:8

"He has showed you, O man;
what is good and what the Lord requires of you.
but to do justly,
and to love mercy,
and to walk humbly with our God"

first things first...God wants us to do what is right. He wants us to be fair. He wants us to be kind. He wants us to help people. He wants us to be generous. He wants us to be selfless. in short, He wants us to be like He is.

i think we make a quick discover that this isn't easy...we are not prone to selflessness...we often fall short of living this stuff out...so, we ask for mercy.

asking for (and recieving!) mercy reminds us that we should also be merciful...full of mercy. we should be people who love mercy...both the mercy that is shown us and the mercy we have an opportunity to show others. and maybe if we look at other people's short comings not as irrataions, but as opportunities to show mercy, we'd be more apt to do so...

all this helps us to be humble. i know i don't have it all together...but God is gracious and gentle with me...He's the superhero...He's the main attraction...i'm just His side kick. it isn't about me, it's about Him.
