Hosea 12-14, Romans 12
2Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
“Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position.” Showing extravagant kindness to EVERYONE is what Jesus would do
When we become full and lifted in heart, sinful humanity forgets God. Living in even a wealthy and comfortable place like the US, May I be poor in spirit and contrite in heart before my Holy God.
10Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. 12Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
1I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. 2Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
This passage reminds me of this: that God is both full of love and mercy and also justice. I tend to be merely full of (wanting) justice. While others are full of love and mercy. I think that it is the part of God we cannot grasp, because we all lean one direction or the other, while He is complete in both sides.
