but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? (Micah 6:8)
Beloved, it is our task and our mission to be a blessing. We cannot be a blessing to others and still operate through condemnation, criticism, or judgment. We can only accomplish our mission of blessing through people who love mercy and walk humbly with their God; in a spirit of love, mercy, and forgiveness. The Church should be a place of mercy, not of condemnation. Yes, we must speak the truth and it may cause discomfort, but we should operate from a place of love and mercy so that others may be reconciled to God, just as we are.
and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple. (Psalms 5:7)
with my mouth will I make known
thy faithfulness to all generations.
For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever:
thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens.
Micah 6:8 point out how critically important mercy is and how vitally important it is to show mercy.
