To Act Justly & Love Mercy
The ancient prophet Micah urges us to act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with God (Micah 6:8). We have spent much of this year talking about the value of embracing humility as an antidote to the problem of pride. We have been striving to learn what it means to “walk humbly with God” and we now want to explore the issues of justice and mercy, and their relationship to the quality of humility.
A concern for justice plays a significant role in our current cultural conversations. Many people disagree about what justice should look like and how it should be carried out. We also can struggle to determine how to temper justice with mercy.
To help us get a handle on these vital issues, we will explore several different Bible passages that help us understand justice and mercy from God’s perspective. If we can better understand how God chooses to act justly and love mercy, then we will be better equipped to reflect His heart to our very broken world.
