I know this is a really depressing title. As Christian Working Moms are main focus has to be on being followers of Christ. I read the most depressing obituary in the my Bible reading this morning. Listen to 1 Chronicles 10:13-14, "Saul died because he was unfaithful to the LORD; he did not keep the word of the LORD and even consulted a medium for guidance, and did not inquire of the LORD. So the LORD put him to death and turned the kingdom over to David son of Jesse."
Saul started out following God and obeying God's commands, but he didn't end His life that way. The Christian walk is about being faithful over time. Not starting off with a burst of energy and finishing with a fizzle. We need to faithfully follow God's commands over our entire life.
Listen to this verse that tells us how we are to live, "He has showed you, O man, 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 6:8.
Saul violated the verse in Micah by believing his own press. What I mean is Saul often got the big head and didn't think he needed to consult God. Saul decided he could do things his own way. Didn't turn out well at all for Saul.
Now it is your turn. What does God's word lived out mean when it says to act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with God? How do we live that out in our daily lives?
May we as Christians have an obituary that reflects Micah 6:8 much more than 1 Chronicles 10:13. May our entire life reflect back on God and for His glory.
Please share your thoughts and living out Micah 6:8.
