Happy MLK Day

"He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?" (Micah 6:8).

Jesus rebuked the Pharisees for doing their religious duties while neglecting "justice and the love of God" (Luke 11:42).

To treat people with fairness and integrity is part of our responsibility as Christians. Standing publicly for what is right is required of us as well.
May we honor God by living out truth in action in our world today
Justice is the clarion call for Christians—

We cannot step aside from what God said;
He has told us how to treat our neighbor,
And we must follow in the path He's led.

God's standard of justice leaves no room for prejudice.
