Do justly now, love mercy now, walk humbly now.

Good thoughts for any season.

Quote
That Quotation from the Talmud: "Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world's grief. Do justly now, love mercy now, walk humbly now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it."

There are more people in the world than we can feed, can house, can even imagine-we have the choice to close and fortify the heart or keep it open. The second takes more courage. All wisdom, all salvation lies in this. The heart opening and opening to hold all, to dissolve its boundaries in a truth we don't yet know.

Doug Anderson, like too few humans today, understands the cause and effect message within that quote from the Talmud. That is, that God centered Caring Capacity, not worries and decisions made based on human centered Carrying Capacity, is what God celebrates, rewards and requires (see: ... neither are you free to abandon it.) in us. When we put material Carrying Capacity above all other considerations, we are in danger of losing our souls. God centered Caring Capacity is not optional for the Salvation seeking Servant of God.

Quote
And he would answer and say to them, “The man who has two tunics is to share with him who has none; and he who has food is to do likewise.” Luke 3:11


Christians, and anybody else out there, who choose to continue to live according to the wisdom of the world, are not living as friends of God. They are living in adultery as God's enemies.
Quote
... Don't you know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? So whoever wants to be the friend of the world becomes the enemy of God." James 4:4
Quote
For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’

Then they also will answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?’ Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’ And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” Matthew 25:42-46

Quote
..., 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
 
For I was hungry and you gave me food,
I was thirsty and you gave me drink,
I was a stranger and you welcomed me,
I was naked and you clothed me,
I was sick and you visited me,
I was in prison and you came to me.’ Matthew 25:34-36


Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart. Ps. 97:11
