A Minimal Paradigm

A few days ago I was speaking with a friend who I’m fairly confident is a believer in Christ, though we’re of considerably different faiths. She expressed a change of attitude and wanted my thoughts.

It seems she knows what things make her stressed and what things don’t. Pursuit of money making activities is stressful. She’s the more artistic and creative type.

She referred to a feeling she should be guided by some overarching paradigm, but couldn’t pinpoint what that might be specifically right now. I asked her if she believed she was doing God’s will. She said she felt comfort and guidance from God after being at a certain Christian conference a month before.

There’s much God allows us to do within the boundaries of His overall will. But a certain verse came to mind while I was speaking with my friend, and I couldn’t quote it to her at that moment. She appreciated the e-mail in which I quoted it later.

It’s a minimal paradigm to guide our lives.

He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
– Micah 6:8
