Thought for the Day: On Sunday I shared the importance of having a clear response to the question: What are you doing here? Though the question can be heard in many different ways, I ask it in the big and broader sense. The question is asking about a personal mission statement, a clear sense of who you are in the universe. There are a lot of scriptures one could draw from, but these words from Micah would be an important scripture to consider. To ask the question, “What is good?” is to be reminded that only God is good, yet we are to endeavor to reflect God and the goodness of God. If that is our goal, then there are certain things required, including: to do justice, embrace faithful love and to walk humbly with God. I’m not suggesting you choose these words for yourself, but maybe wrestle with them for the day. What would it look like to make these words your mantra, and then to elevate them to your purpose statement for life?
Prayer: Continue to encourage me, O Lord, and in your encouragement provide me some courage. It might appear to be easier to wonder through life somewhat aimlessly, but if I desire to be faithful to you, then I need to know who I am and what I am doing here. Help me in my search. Amen.
