Mic 6:1-4, 6-8
Ps 50:5-6, 8-9, 16bc-17, 21+23
Matt 12:38-42

“You have been told, O man, what is good, and what the LORD requires of you: Only to do the right and to love goodness, and to walk humbly with your God.” -Micah 6:8

Walk humbly with your God. What does this mean to you? As I was growing up, I always wondered: Am I doing enough for the Lord? I should go to Mass every Sunday, never lie, and be a good Catholic. But when you come before the Lord, you shall present so much more than the fact that you were a good Catholic; we all must be true servants of the Lord.

So what does this entail? For me, this means remaining true to the Word of God every single day. Whether through my actions, my words, or my thoughts, I am always trying to keep the Lord in my mind; above all, I am treating my brothers and sisters with love and care as the Lord instructs us to “love thy neighbor.” This passage from the Gospel of Matthew speaks on “the judgment.” What do you envision the Lord asking you on your judgment day? Though it is difficult oftentimes not to get frustrated with others, it comes down to the same traditional phrase: what would Jesus do?

As a senior in college, nearing the end of my college career, I realize that now is a great time more than ever to share the love of the Lord with others before my departure. And I hope to continue to walk humbly with the Lord as I graduate and embark on new adventures. To the upright I will show the saving power of God.
