It's February 5; Good Morning Union

“He has shown you O man what is good.”             Micah 6:8

If it’s important to God, it’s clear in His word. I live by that axiom as I journey through God’s word and attempt to make it application in my life. Micah provided me with additional proof this morning.

“I’ll show you what’s good. And you know what I need you to do?

1.            do justly

2.            love mercy

3.            walk humbly with your God

Or my paraphrase:

1.            Do what is right, because it’s right

2.            Be kind to others on the journey

3.            Remember, the goal is not to win at someone else’s expense. It’s to respond to life with the understanding that God loves every other person as much as I want Him to love me.

THAT’S what the Lord requires of me if I want to make sense out of this journey through life and have confidence and assurance that my connection with God is such that He can use me as an illustration of what He desires from all His children.

Have a great day being His illustration today,

Pastor Rich

PPS YES, in case you haven’t heard, there IS school today. A little snow and cold can’t stop a campus like Union!  So put on your long underwear and bundle up for a BEAUTIFUL winter day!!
