Daily Devotional Day 32

Day 32. Take Time to Be Holy

May 7, 2020

“He has told you, O mortal, what is good: and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, seek kindness, and walk humbly with your God.”  Micah 6:8

Read: Micah 6:1-8

As I visited with a woman, she shared with incredible love stories of her family, her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren. Amazed, I said to her, “you are a lucky lady.” She replied with conviction, “whether I had many children or none, I am not lucky, I am blessed.” As the teared streamed down her face she witnessed a faith that affirmed life was not about the number of children someone has, or how much money; life is all about knowing that we are blessed with every moment by a loving God who calls us to share that love with those around them. I never forgot that conversation so many years ago; she was the very definition of living the requirement of God to “seek justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with your God.”  In a world that piles on more and more requirements, rules, and regulations, God says it is time to simplify our lives and live in the freedom and abundance of the grace of Jesus Christ, who calls us to love God and neighbor, while being kind to one another, doing what is right, and humbly professing that it is Jesus who is ultimately in charge; this is the blessing of faith. It is not lucky to be offered such grace and freedom from those things that just seems to make life less bearable like judgment, bitterness, anger, and anything like those that just needlessly saps our strength; it is a blessing from God. We are not lucky to have Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we are blessed. You are blessed, whoever you are, whether you have plenty or little, big family or no family. You are blessed because you are loved by God, pure and simple. To have faith is to walk humbly, loving doing what is right, and to see the kindness in others. You are blessed, truly blessed; luck has nothing to do with the gifts you have received from God.


Name 3 blessings you have received from God today.

What kindness in others have your celebrated this week?

How are you taking time to be holy today?


Prayer:  Loving God, open my eyes so I may see the many blessings you have given me today. Help me to celebrate the blessings of others, their kindness and their devotion to you and others. Amen
