What can we do?

"Only to act justly, to love tenderly, and to walk humbly with your God."
Micah 6:8

In these perilous times, sometimes it is good to have simple, clear instructions to follow. We can wring our hands, get in over our heads mentally about all that is wrong in the world, but simple instructions can help us focus on what we can actually do to help the situations gone amok. What can we do in our small circle of influence in our own time and place? Peace must begin in our own hearts, first, then extend to family and friends, neighborhoods and towns. It isn't likely we will be asked to speak to the UN about peace, but we sure are asked to cultivate peace where we are, today, now. God gives us a peace, God's own peace, even as the world seems chaotic around us. That peace is instilled in our hearts, but it is up to us to spread it out to our environments. So, to review:
                                                            --Live justly
                                                            --Love tenderly
                                                            --Walk humbly with God
Let's make all three part of our summer Monday!  Love, heidi
