Do Justice

A Truth to Live – Following God’s ways is a journey of choices and actions.  The choices are what I believe and the actions are how I live out what I believe.  Jesus compared it to the fruit of tree. You can tell the type of tree based on the fruit it bears.  One evidence of God’s journey is acting “justly” and giving mercy to others.

Scripture – “He has shown you, O man, 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

Prayer – Heavenly Father, I realize that to walk with You I must carry out justice in my world. It is not sufficient for me to see the dark impact of evil in this world and complain. Grant me the courage and wisdom to begin to defend those whose lives are mistreated and to work for justice for those who remain defenseless.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
