Show Me Again

By: Nathan Mazzuca [Dupont, WA]

I killed it! I killed the engine over and over and over again.

My parents believed that teaching me to drive meant putting me behind the wheel of a Ford Tempo with a stick shift that didn’t work well. I guess they figured that if I could drive this car, then driving would be easy! I remember asking my step-dad over and over to “show me again” because I just didn’t get it.

He has shown you, O mortal, 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 (NIV)


Have you felt the same way about your relationship with God? What am I supposed to do? Show me again, God! Today, stop and remember that God has already shown us. Our relationship with God isn’t quite as complicated as that stick shift.

Micah 6:8 tells us to do justice, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with God. Or we can keep it simple, like a new automatic shift: God wants us to do the right thing, to love other people and be concerned with their well-being, and to stay close to God. See—easier than a stick shift!


REFLECT ON MICAH 6:8: In what ways can you do what God requires? What practices help you to do justice? to love mercy? to walk humbly with God?
