SEPTEMBER SERMON SERIES:
JUSTICE, KINDNESS, WALK HUMBLY WITH OUR GOD
During the month of September, our sermons will explore the theme Justice, Kindness, Walk Humbly With Our God. This three-fold theme comes to us from Micah 6:8, What does the Lord require of you, but to do justice, and love kindness, and walk humbly with your God? For many of us, this is a concise description of the life of faith.
Justice refers to our pursuit of what is right, standing up for the poor and the vulnerable, speaking up for those who do not have access to resources and power.
Kindness refers to the practice of steadfast love, a warm-hearted regard for others that is filled with gentleness and mercy.
Justice and kindness can be in a certain tension with each other. It is possible to pursue justice, but to do so without kindness. We can act with bitterness and meanness, especially towards those who are acting in unjust ways. It is also possible to pursue kindness, but to neglect justice. We can turn a blind eye to the injustice and cruelty of the world, because we do not want to “rock the boat.” That is where the third term comes in.
Walking humbly with God is absolutely crucial, because God is the One who acts with both justice and kindness, who raises up the poor and shows kindness and mercy to all. The kingdom of God is a kingdom of justice and kindness; as citizens of the kingdom of God, that is the path for us, as well.
