James 4:17 (CEB) “It is a sin when someone knows the right thing to do and doesn’t do it.”
Thinking about all the stuff going on in our world. What is the right thing to do? We can say we are praying for the victims but what does that really resolve? When was the last time you called on an elected official to have your voice heard? That violence like what happened in Las Vegas is unacceptable and the gun laws need to be changed. How have you helped the people affected by the Hurricanes that have occurred in over the last month? What do you do about Mexico? There is so much going on what do we do?
Where do you feel God leading you to do the right thing? Have you prayed for God to lead and guide you? Where do you feel the nudge of God pushing you? We need you to do something. And, “what the Lord requires from you: to do justice, embrace faithful love, and walk humbly with your God (Micah 6:8 CEB).”
Here is what you can do.
- Pray: for those who are hurting, for those who are serving, for God to give you guidance.
- Do: Work with those who are already doing something there are many options. Perhaps Google: How can I help with…
- Go: find a place to connect into and connect in and be an active force.
May God be with you as you Pray, Do, Go.
