The prophet Micah first spoke these words during a time of great trouble for the people of God. Granted, it was a much different kind of trouble than the trouble that we're facing today, but it was trouble nonetheless, and these words still speak.
What does God expect from his people right now? The same thing that he has always expected from us. That we would act justly and love mercy and walk humbly with him. One day at a time. As we watch and wait over the next few weeks, let's not neglect these things.
As believers, we don't respond to tragedy and uncertainty in the same way that the world does, because our hope lies not in this world, but in heaven. So we do what's right, even if it means sacrifice, and we look out for the vulnerable among us, because that's the way of Jesus. He lowered himself to lift us higher, and we must do the same.
For me, right now, that means staying home with our girls and taking care of our family as best as I can, making the best use of the groceries and supplies that we have in the house, calling up some older ladies from church to make sure they have everything they need, trying to support other small business owners as they ride out this storm, sharing light and hope and truth in deep darkness, and making my heart happy in the Lord before I do anything else each day.
It may not seem like much, but it's all that I can do. So I'll do it as faithfully as I can today, tomorrow, and the next day too. Will you join me?
