“The Lord has told you what is good, and this is what He requires of us – to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6:8)
These are important words of ‘how’ to live in this life.
We all face mountains. Adversities. Obstacles that require decision. Sometimes, the decision is to scale that mountain, to lean in, and press onward. However, I think sometimes, it’s to turn, to walk away, and find a different route.
I’m sure some of you know such moments, where you feel stuck – where you find yourself begging of God to guide and direct?
Heed the prophet’s instructions above. In short, regardless which direction is required, “do it right, be mindful of others, and be humbled.” In other words, don’t just walk away with only your best interest in mind – that means you will enter wherever you are going with the same mindset. Consider the body, the church, as a whole. Over-communicate, as well as, take time to listen to the heart of others and how they will be affected.
So, whether it’s time to step in or step away – do it as you would want Jesus to do to you. If His witness doesn’t win, then anything is loss.
