 A Moral Voice

 

It seems as if everyday from politics, to business, to education, to finances, to even within the church there are abundant examples of people living and acting as if they have never heard of or heard from a moral voice. Even the word “moral” has been quietly disappearing from the public vernacular to be replaced by “ethics.” Morals denote some moral system, but few agree upon what moral system to follow and therefore now people are making them up as they go along.

 

Thankfully the has always been God’s Moral Voice for those who have sought to hear it. God saw to it that it would be recorded in scripture and those who read God’s word can find what is expected of us to have a moral voice and to live morally.

 

Micah 6:8 New International Version (NIV)

 

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[
a] with your God.

 

When humans faithfully follow God’s Moral Voice then treat others more than humanely, but lovingly.

 

 

 

Stay prayed Up,
