Micah 6:8 rings true again

Wow…talking about a sad situation for everyone involved.  The children and their families have apparently been victimized by a person and an institution.  Both charged with protecting and serving the very people harmed.


Rather thank finishing well, the coach will resign and move forward forever stained by the cover up he aided in making happen.

I pray that we would all have the courage to do the right and courageous thing when the time comes in our own lives.  Rather than worry about potential fallout we would all follow the commands given to us in Micah 6:8:

8 No, O people, the LORD has told you what is good,
and this is what he requires of you:
to do what is right, to love mercy,
and to walk humbly with your God.

I know as well as you it is easier to be a pundit than a player.  Offering critique and pointing out obvious problems requires little effort or risk.  What we really need is a group of people who are willing to be involved in the lives (both good and bad circumstances) of those around us.

My hope is that the Penn State situation will be a call to action as we re-examine what justice and mercy look like in today’s world.  My prayer is that we will do all of this out of a heart full of love for God.
