Lately, I’ve realized that my priorities don’t always match God’s. Let’s pray that we would prioritize the things God cares about.
The Kingdom is imbued with justice and overflows with mercy. And God has called us to live the same way.
We will never be able to perfectly care for others, do justice, love mercy, or walk humbly, but we can become more and more like him each and every day.
Walking humbly with God isn’t pressure-filled. It is embracing who he has called and empowered us to be.
In Micah 6:8, God commands us to love mercy, which is not something that comes naturally to me.
Our view of justice has become one of punishment and payment instead of life-change and restoration of relationship.
With the Lord, justice, mercy, and humility aren’t opposing ideas, they all work together in harmony.
While living in the past isn’t healthy, I think that remembering where we’ve come from and what God has brought us through is incredibly important.
I will often spend time wrestling with contradictions and inconsistencies even if I know these things will never come to a resolution. What about you?
How we treat others reveals the state of our hearts.
