2020 has been a hard one for the world so far. There’s Covid-19, with an economic downturn as the result of this global pandemic and in recent weeks, discrimination, injustice and social inequality highlighting the brokenness of our world. Many are confused, hurting, fearful, and yearning for love and unity.
Most of us find ourselves ill-equipped to respond to these issues, and we’re afraid of how difficult or different our lives would be if we stepped outside of our comfort zones and into the faithfulness to which God has called us.
But the prophet Micah clearly outlines how God would want us to respond to a broken world: to “act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with Him” (Micah 6:8). We’re to be advocates of what is just, righteous, and loving.
So, how should we respond as believers? We can start by drawing near to the brokenhearted in prayer and hospitality, being a positive influence in our circle, or donating some of our finances to help those in need.
Whatever it might be, let’s do it all for the glory of God, following in the example of Christ as we seek to love others with the unconditional love and grace that God gives us each day.
