Simple, Yet Challenging Message

July 20, 2020

You have been told, O man, what is good,
and what the LORD requires of you:
Only to do the right and to love goodness,
and to walk humbly with your God. (Micah 6:6-8)

Micah: Do the right thing. Love goodness. Walk humbly with God.

Jesus: Love God with all your heart, and love your neighbor as yourself.

God’s message to us, whether conveyed by prophets such as Micah or through His son, Jesus, has been consistent over time – consistent and simple.

We are constantly searching for happiness. We seek answers that will explain the evil in our world. We look to fill the void in our lives. Where do we begin? Fr. Jim said it best in his homily yesterday: We begin by looking inward. Peace has to start in our own hearts.

Are you willing to follow God’s simple directives to love, do the right thing, and walk humbly with Him?

Saying “Yes” means setting aside your hatred, anger, bitterness, resentment, prejudice, and jealousy. It requires setting aside your own needs and focusing on others.

So…are you willing?

The message is simple; living the message is challenging.
