Looking For Something Better? Tips From a Friend

My exhortation for how to live comes from Micah 6

He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?                Micah 6:8 (King James Version)

Sometimes we think that things are overwhelming and life is too complex and the problems are too big.  I learned this verse growing up as a song.  Don’t you love the way scripture set to music embeds in our memory and pops up exactly when we need it!  God has much to say to us in scripture about just weights and measures and how to treat our fellow man and it boils down to rather simply this:

DO JUSTLY

LOVE MERCY

WALK HUMBLY

Think about the order of the items with the action item on top.  Do justly or as we would say today ‘act justly’.  But in doing justice, have a heart for mercy.  While demanding justice, be ready to extend mercy appropriately or with sacrificial love and hope!  In the midst of acting justly and extending mercy, above all walk humbly.

Our great example in all of this is Our Father in heaven.  If He could risk it all for us by sending His own Son to die in our place do we really have any excuse for not doing the same.  What if by modeling justice and mercy and humility to others, I could effect positive change in my family, my church, my community, my city, my nation, and my world?

Worth a try don’t you think!  Did I forget to mention that we are going to need His help to do so?  Tis true and He is able to help us if we will but look to Him in all matters.  He wouldn’t have told us to do it and sent us a Savior if it wasn’t what He wanted us to know and do now would He!

May you walk humbly, love mercy and do justice as you model His great example before others.  I think you will see Him smile and feel His presence as you do so!

Blessings,

Calls needed to Senate on all bills mentioned below; House as well on Health Care Bill.

Where are the champions on these issues – melt the phones and tell us about the calls!

_________________________________________________________________

Defeat S. 909 Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Bill

Status: Currently in the Senate, this bill could come up for a vote as early as TODAY.

As reported on the Boston.com site, this hate crimes legislation has now been attached to a Defense spending bill that is currently on the Senate floor.

There are many problems with “hate crimes” legislation, including that violates the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment by providing special protections to some citizens it does not afford to others. It further violates the First Amendment by suppressing speech and religion.

On the Truth Tellers site, there is a video featuring testimony of Attorney General Eric Holder admitting that the bill doesn’t provide equal protection for all.

Defeat Sotomayor for Supreme Court

Status: Currently in Senate Judiciary Com and will pass out of committee easily. This should be a target vote and we should ask all constitutionalists R’s and D’s and I’s to oppose this confirmation based on:

1) right to keep and bear arms

2) private property and the respect thereof

3) prolife core issue

4) ethical standing before the committee

5) judicial temperment

For more information, visit the Gun Owners of America site

Defeat of Pass Act

Status: Currently in Senate.

For more information on this bill visit the following sites:

Stop Real ID Coalition

OK-Safe, read the July 2 posting

Defeat of Socialized Medicine

Status: Currently being proposed by Obama Administration, moved out of the Senate Health Committee on July 15

This bill may come up for a vote before Congress goes on the summer break.

A government take over of the US health care system will be a disaster both to our economy and to the quality of medical care.

For more information, see

The Cato Institute’s “Five Myths About Socialized Medicine”

Heritage Foundation “The House Health Care Bill a Blueprint for Federal Control”

Defeat of Cap and Trade

Status: Currently in Senate, reported to be delayed until after the summer break, passed out of the House on June 26

This bill stands to have ruinous effects on our economy, significant increases in costs for utilities and purchases, and intrusion of government into nearly every part our lives.
