Another day begins . . .
Does your day start off with the “short-list” and “long-list” of things to do? Typically mine does!
Yet, how simple is it what God requires of us each day?
Three things . . . easy to understand. But so often we make the daily living extremely difficult for ourselves by willfully forgetting a step or even thinking one or all of these actions don’t necessarily apply to a particular aspect or circumstance in our life. Either way, we’re not walking in obedience or righteousness.
Three simple verbs.
- Do justly. In every thing we do – every action, every decision we are to act honorably, morally upright, and fair.
- Love mercy. Embrace and shower compassion, kindness, and forgiveness on everyone, even those who have hurt us. Remember, usually mercy is undeserved.
- Walk humbly. Lifting up Him whom has shown me mercy. Walking with Him, without pride and arrogance because without Him, I am nothing but emptiness and brokenness. It’s not what I bring to HIM, it is how I interact with HIM.
My daily “to do” list – is to be the Walk we share. Not just on Sunday mornings, or in those dark times of pain and hurt. Or when I “need” something. Instead, every day He desires these close and intimate times with me ~ listening and talking and praying.
Three things to do each and every day
. . . and at the end of your day, no matter what your “short-list” or your “long-list” had on it, HIS list become the longings of your heart.
