Do Justice, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly

By Eowyn @DrEowyn

Micah-6-8

“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” – Micah 6:8

We have been subjected to a lot of apocalyptic talk in recent days.

One of my family members came back from a big Christian music event, and told me he doesn’t intend to go there again. He said that on the way home, the others in the car with him were talking about how all Christians will soon be rounded up and killed, due to the recent Supreme Court decision on gay marriage. He said he has had it with all the fear talk. One of the geniuses in the car even said there are only about 15,000 real Christians in the country. (I would love to see how he gets his statistics.)

My advice was to remind him of some things that have not changed:

  • Gays are a tiny minority in this country, and the radical ones who want to cause trouble are a tiny minority of the gays. That’s a small number.
  • Christians in America are a majority, which is why each of the elections since Obama was elected have seen landslides for conservatives.The Christians in America are not pacifists. We will fight.
  • God hasn’t abandoned us.
  • The war between good and evil has been going on since Cain killed Abel. People thought the world was ending when Hitler took over.
  • This is not the final round. We don’t stop fighting. We need to be like Rocky Balboa, and get back in the ring. Make the enemy wish they had never started the fight.

Whether the Lord returns today, or 30,000 years from now, whether we leave this earth in the rapture or when our death comes, God’s desire is that we…

Do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God

Let’s be sure that we are found doing good, instead of wasting time speculating on the timing of of things the Father is keeping secret.
