July 8, 2022 – Summer of Love

Read today’s scripture….Micah 6:6-8

When I was a little girl, my mother had a few special things she always wanted me to do.  She always wanted me to keep my bedroom clean.  If I left for school and had a messy room, I was sure to come home and find all the mess on my bed.  My mother did that, so I had to clean it up before I could sleep.  The other thing that my mother always wanted was for me to know where my things were located.  This goes along with having a clean room.  If I asked her where my shoes were or if she had seen my belt, she would always say, “Kristyne, a place for everything and everything in its place.”  Sometimes she would say it with a big sigh because she had to say it so many times.  I was not a tidy child. 

I imagine God is speaking to humanity in this same way, with a big sigh, because God has told us repeatedly what we are to do.  God says, “No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good…”.   Just like my mom, God has just a few things we are to be focused on…for my mom; it was cleaning my room and putting everything in its place; for God, it is doing what is right, love mercy, and walking humbly with God.
