A Great Cloud of Witnesses – 26 Jan 2011

On Sunday we will listen to a reading from the Book of Micah. It contains a wisdom that I strive to live by. I have been blessed along my way to meet persons (young and old) actually living the wisdom of Micah. Their witness encourages me.

Today’s quote: “He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to act justly, love tenderly, and to walk humbly with your God.”

Micah 6:8 (1)

Invitation

  • be still
  • let the cloud of witnesses envelop you
  • find your witness or witnesses who lived/are living this truth
  • give thanks for their presence in your life
  • when ready, go with encouragement and renewed energy

Explanation

____________
(1) Micah 6:8 Translation offered by Walter Brueggemann (a scholar of the Hebrew Bible) in the book To Act Justly, Love Tenderly, Walk Humbly: An Agenda for Ministers
