Micah 6:8   Thought/Prayer:  Simple Words.  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.)

The prophet Micah is addressing the Israelites concerning God’s view of the way they were living.  He speaks of deceit, lies, and violence, to mention a few.  Their sacrifices were displeasing to God.  He says in verse 13, “Therefore also will I make you sick in smiting you, in making you desolate because of your sins.”  But then?: The words above, repeated here:  “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?”  It is just so simple.
We know that the Israelites worshipped God according to the guidelines He provided for them, laws that required the sacrificing of animals, the sprinkling of the sacrificial blood on the altar, and more.  These laws were to be followed.

But when the sins of the people started tainting the meaning of the sacrifices, God doesn’t . . . indeed, cannot . . . ignore it.  He becomes quite angry, as we can see described in verse 13.  But take to heart verse 8, upon which we can build our love and service to him – by being just, merciful, and humble in our walk with God.  This can fit directly into our stance for the inestimable value created life.

When we are serving others in this stance, let us apply the simplicity of these quiet words.  May we do the just thing (to stand for the preborn and for justice within the womb); to have mercy and love it, when we need so much to see the value of life in those who threaten to destroy it in the womb;  to be humble before Him and those we serve, even to the degree of eating humble pie when we must admit we were wrong.  (Humble pie may be untasteworthy when we have to eat it; but then we feel so much better!) 

Lord, Your desire to see us being just, merciful and humble may inform most of the pro-life efforts in our world.  We are to take a stand; and justice is often not without a cost;  Some will see justice as bigoted and narrow.  Some will say that mercy toward those who advocate abortion is nothing but wishy-washy; some may see humility as weak-kneed subjection.  But even so, Lord, help us to be qualified to claim these qualities. 

For it is You Who undergirds justice, mercy and humility in our human world.

Topics:  Pray for these three qualities to permeate pro-life efforts around the world, in a strong and victorious manner.
