Week 3: Day 6
The Quest for Justice
Scripture to meditate on:
With what shall I come before the Lord
and bow down before the exalted God?
Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,
with calves a year old?
Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,
with ten thousand rivers of olive oil?
Shall I offer my firstborn for my transgression,
the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
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 with your God. – Micah 6:6-8
As we saw in our first week on justice, we must see the connection between spirituality and justice, calling us to live justly and mercifully in our world.
Questions to ponder:
- How do you view the relationship between spirituality and justice?
- In what areas of your life can you strive for greater justice and mercy?
- How can walking humbly with God influence your pursuit of justice?
