You are part of something unimaginably bigger than you.
You can have little or no idea what that is about.
It is above your pay-grade.
You are a single letter in the book of God’s story.
Each particle of this world is your sister or brother because we are all born of the same star;
and so you could treat each thing, however humble – because humble – with familial tenderness.
Each minute by-passed on the way to some bigger purpose is a beggar passed by on the other side.
“Do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly” right now, not in a spectacular act of generosity or sacrifice, but now, reading, eating breakfast, shaving, walking, on the train, looking out the window, typing: in each and every grain of being this body.
This is where God is and what God wants.
You could be this with justice, kindness and humility to this God-given, holy moment.
Whatever you are doing, whoever you are, God is here, in this, in you.
[Look out for part V tomorrow.]
