The past few months have exposed many inhumane incidents. Racism, Caste-ism , Classism, Sexism and so much more. All of these calls to mind the responsibility of life.
Micah 6:8 – No, 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. (NLT)
Here the spiral of people represents the kingdom of God and the people around this spiral of dancing, kingdom people are people who are not ‘daunted by the world’s grief but do justly, love mercy and walk humbly now before the Almighty God’.
The Pirkei Avot 2:21 of the Jewish Mishnah states It is not incumbent upon you to finish the task. Yet, you are not free to desist from it.
Where are you and what can you do in your situation to
Do Justly, Now!
Love Mercy, Now!
and Walk Humbly before God, Now!
Are you listening to the cries around you?
In India, we have many migrant workers starving, dying along their way home – simply because of the lack of resources and provisions to care for their needs. The daily-wage people have no means or are struggling to provide food for their families.
In Zimbabwe, the leaders are living such affluent and wealthy lives leaving the people of the land with very poor infrastructure to even live decent lives.
The women in Bolivia are being trafficked. The children of Vietnam are sexually exploited.
The people of color in the US are being ill treated and murdered simply out of fear.
In this global world are the cries of the peoples from far away lands tugging at your heart strings?
Listen – Pray – Do- Love – Walk.
May the good Lord be with you as you find ways to fulfil your responsibility.
