How just are you? How merciful? As in how energetic are you about that?

Tricky question.

Following up on the question I asked last month ...
I asked, How converted are you? One of the marks of being converted is to be stridently NOT on the Devil's side any more or ever again.

Jesus' best friend, John says (1 John 3:8 ) 'The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the Devil's work.' Micah the old prophet from about 2700 years ago was fond of asking and answering, 'What does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.'

I find it hard enough to walk humbly with God which is quiet and private thing, let alone do the hard and public things. I suppose you do too. But 'too hard' has never been an acceptable excuse has it?

The Devil's work seems to be mostly about fostering injustice, destruction of love, and to negate mercy (not to mention the invention of Facebook). So if we are not on the Devil's side and support the work of Jesus, it leaves us one daily question: How energetic about justice and mercy have I been so far today?

These are nasty days
It's a strategic time to ask how energetic are you abouty justie and mercy

Anyway, to infinity and beyond.

Live long and prosper.
