It’s Christmas, or just about, the most ‘wonderweirdfilled’ time of the year.
This is the time of year where we are reminded of all the wonderful things that we can be thankful for and all the screwed-up messes we would like to forget.
Oh, how I wish that all was calm and all is bright.
I referred to it before, but Micah 6:8, “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly (Prudently) with your God.” (NIV) along with Romans 12:18, “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.” (NIV)
These passages relay a humbly, tenaciously, cautiously lived life. That is what we are called to. Regardless of acceptance or reprisal, ours is to live these words out in worship before our God who sees all and knows all. It’s not complicated, but oh boy, sometimes it’s quite difficult.
I have discovered that I am responsible for no one else but myself when it comes to the things that I can change.
So change, I will.
What you do and how you respond, is entirely up to you.
