Micah 6:8 (Pt. 2)  Thought/Prayer:  Living Justly.  Topics:  2 at end.

“He has showed you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?”  (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com.)

Perhaps one of the challenging aspects of this scripture is “to do justly.”  How do we get this accomplished, this justice required of us?  What is justice anyway?

Well, the word justice can have several attributes, we might say.  It can have to do with being impartial, or fair, or doing the right thing, etc.  It may seem simple, simply said.  But if it were totally simple, why do we have whole hierarchies of courts and judges and juries and more – just to attempt to have justice in the world?  The nine individuals who sit at the highest bench in the USA are called, not judges, but justices!

So how is it hard to be just when we are upholding the human, created life, as sacred and to be honored?  How could there be any question about this?  Well, as in court situations, there are often felt to be “gray areas”— areas of needed decisions that can be construed one way or another. 

Some questions may come through consideration of the rights of a father.  The law may dictate that abortion is legal, but when the mother of the baby wants to abort . . . but the father does not . . . where is the standard of justice? 

What about a pregnancy that occurred through rape?  And then there are the questions about babies who will be born only to live a few moments, hours or days because of genetic anomalies.  Family members may line up on both sides of these tough situations, claiming rights for the mom, or for the dad, and hopefully for the unborn child.  Pro-life champions may find themselves involved one way or another, whether they want to take sides, or not.

Anyone embroiled in such a situation will probably see that it cannot be handled without a lot of tough soul-searching and prayer.  God must help us figure these things out, all the while valuing LIFE.  The hoped-for outcome is, of course, that God will reveal the light of His will to all concerned; the baby will be born; and there will have been some maturing of trust in God, for all concerned.  And at the level of the courts, prayer is totally needed because the courts are not peopled with those persons of faith as a baseline.  The courts are secular (although there are many Christians in the system of justice) and thusly, those within the different levels will especially need the guidance God gives, as He answers our prayers.

To do justly:  It is up to us to seek guidance for our own lives and for those where LIFE is at stake – from a pregnancy from crime, to the adjudication of the elderly in their right to decide their own futures.  Lord, help us all to do justly.  Guide us, please.

Topics:  Pray for wisdom when it comes to living justly before the Lord, especially in the pro-LIFE areas.
