I have been struck by both the simplicity and power of Micah 6:8 since I first heard it read by President Jimmy Carter during his inauguration. Today I see more in this passage than I did then, though the depths and beauty of any of God’s word is far beyond what I can fully understand or possibly communicate in this short poem today. Have a blessed day all!
When did you show us to do what is just And how did you teach us to walk where we must? Was it in Bethlehem in the hay of a barn There in the wonder our Savior was born? Or when we saw your mercy When you heard a man’s cries? How you called Him to come And you opened His eyes Or could it be maybe We learned to walk by your side When You carried Your cross To the place where You died Or was it when they laid you now silent and still In the tomb before the night at the top of that hill? Until on the day before dawn when you rose In the garden you showed us all justice fulfilled All Justice Fulfilled by Peter Caligiuri copyright 2021 all rights reserved He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8 NKJV
