I really want my life to count for something greater than myself. And I really believe that if I want my life to matter, than I must learn to live into the things that matter to God. Of course, that begs the question, “What matters to God?”, to which the prophet Micah responds:
“To do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly.”
For me, these three statements become a vision statement for my life, and my tattoo reminds me of that daily:
That everyday I would fight for the cause of justice in this world: to be a voice for those who have no voice; to stand up for those who cannot stand at all; and to help those less fortunate than myself.
To love those around me wholeheartedly; to extend grace and forgiveness, acknowledging my own deep need for grace and mercy.
That I would learn to carry humility with me wherever I go, accepting the opinions and beliefs of others without judgement or a false sense of self-righteousness.
Do Love Walk.
