How to Live Joyfully, O Mortal

This post is again inspired by a video Patriot Nurse did about women’s life after the Supreme Court overturned Roe.

I immediately thought “Nothing’s changed.” These are the two verses that immediately popped into my head. They applied to life before Roe was overturned and still apply after it.

Old Testament

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
    And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
    and to walk humbly with your God.

Micah 6:8 (NIV)

New Testament

16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 5:16 (NIV)

This is how We The People, and not just women, should act no matter what the Supreme Court decides about any case.

Living these verses will bring you closer to God which will bring you joy.

Is living these verses easy? No.

But nothing worthwhile is ever easy.
