The prophet Micah tells us that, “This is what Yahweh asks of you only this, that you act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with our God!” This seems to be a rather simple mandate. But is it? How often do we find ourselves living this mandate to the fullest? Are we able to live this each day? Some days I do believe that it is easy to follow and then other times I wonder. Our world is in the midst of recovering from many natural disasters, there is violence and loss of life, and we sometimes lose sight of what is of the utmost importance. Let us take time today to remember what we are truly called to do and remember that no matter what our God loves us as we are. Our God accepts us and allows us to grow in our own way. God gently guides us along and continues to invite us to keep on keeping on. We are called to love one another and to be Christ for one another. Let us live this day in the peace of Christ’s abundant love for us.
