The annual spiritual theme is a springboard for classroom conversation, our athletics teams, and clubs. From our preschool students to high school seniors, the theme unites our students around a common idea that’s grounded in spiritual truth.
2020-21 Spiritual Theme: Do Justly. Love Mercy. Walk Humbly.
He has shown you, O man, 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 -
Each year, the discipleship staff, students, and the leadership team work together to select the theme for the upcoming school year. For the 2020-2021 school year, the spiritual theme is Do justly. Love mercy. Walk humbly.
The theme is from Micah 6:8, “He has shown you, O man, 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” (NIV).
In the passage, Micah is addressing the Israelites and telling them what God requires of them, despite God telling them numerous times before (ie. Deut. 10:12-13). We often need reminders in life don’t we? Reminders that as Christ-followers we are called to treat people fairly and equitably; reminders to show love and extend grace and forgiveness; and reminders to faithfully walk humbly with our God holding on to His truth.
With the unrest in our world today we need to cling to these reminders! It challenges us to ask ourselves if we love as Jesus loves, if we follow after His righteousness, if we extend grace and mercy to others, and if we truly are walking humbly with our Lord.
In an effort to remind students of the daily surrender to Christ, the theme is displayed around the school on banners, posters, and t-shirts. Students can expect to hear “Do justly. Love mercy. Walk humbly” presented from different perspectives during Spiritual Emphasis Week and throughout our chapels. We hope and pray this theme will help students and teachers grow in the knowledge of God and seek to live out His Word daily.
