He has told you now do it
Listen and obey.
Know, O people, the LORD has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8
I know in today’s world of greed, corruption and self centeredness it is difficult to obey this command but it is the only way.
Everybody else cheats on exams why can’t you? Well, maybe because when the graduate and try to get a contract the contractor will see you do not have the understanding or skill to perform your duties. Everybody else steals at work why can’t I? Well, maybe you will be the one that gets caught. Not only will you be dismissed but good luck on getting a decent job with theft from the company on your record and maybe a criminal record as well.
Why should I give to the food bank or animal shelter? It is more important that I enjoy my coffee at a gourmet shop that overcharges so I can look good to others. There will come a time when you need help and no one will help you. Don’t fool yourself, it happens all the time.
On the other hand, there have been many times when I needed help and someone in an unusual way always comes to help me. There have been numerous times someone is lost and I guide them right to where they are looking to go. Then, there are so many numerous times I have experienced the same kindness reciprocated to me.
There is an old saying: what goes around, comes around.
Oh how hard the arrogant fall and what shame it is to them when it happens. I have seen so many puffed up arrogant swine be brought down into the gutter when they think everybody below them lives. What a mockery they are to everyone. Now they very people they snubbed are the ones that are their neighbours.
On the other hand, I have seen those who are humble before God and they always live a blessed life all their years.
Not my will, but Thy will be done should be front and center in every moment of the day. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) bless me with the strength and wisdom to be a child of righteousness that Your holiness will come shining through. May this create an opportunity to share Your grace with others and guide them to Your righteous family. I ask in the name of Him who never compromised His high morals and showed divine grace Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
