Last week I mused on the force of my ego, and my unwillingness to surrender it to God. Paul writes how Christ has freed us from the need to be self centered on our material needs and desires–that we should serve one another in love. Whether I am reading the Old Testament
or the New, I realize that indeed my call is to love and to walk humbly with God.
The call of the prophet Micah, the call of Christ, is so simple, yet so difficult to live daily. But only in doing so, do I open myself to hear God’s word and feel His presence; only when I let go on my dependency on society’s approval do I create space for God and for others.
