Thought for the Day: The Hebrew word translated here as acts is `asah, a word that has been translated as pressed, produces or brings about. An old preacher I knew translated it as habit, describing the habits of God as kindness, justice and righteousness. And if those are the habits of God, then shouldn’t they be the habits of those who follow in the ways of God? Habits seek to produce or bring about a specific outcome. When I think of habits on a more practical level, I think about the habit of brushing my teeth three times/day. I do this to bring about good dental health. I have a habit of exercising most every day with the hope of producing good physical health. If we are to suggest that kindness, justice and righteousness are habits, what are we hoping to produce or bring about? Maybe it is good social/societal health?
Prayer: May the habits I choose to explore, O Lord, be habits that bring about health to my community. Amen.
