Executive Orders

When I see the tablets held up containing executive orders, I think of Moses who carried tablets with God’s executive orders. God gave them to the one who would lead a bunch of homeless refugees to freedom and the promised land.
This morning we will hear from Micah 6:8, “What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” Jesus will tell his disciples, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven…Blessed are the merciful for they shall receive mercy.” Those are the executive orders Jesus’ disciples are called to follow, even as we preach the foolishness of God’s power through Christ crucified.
