To Be or Not to Be


Be” is a fascinating word. It more than captures

the attention and rigorously stimulates the

imagination. It is everything to everyone all

the time, yet poses a formidable challenge to

be harnessed and presented in a meaningful

way. The word “be” is most often coupled with

“to” usually in a passive form. However, great

implications result when the action verb form

of “be” is used. This has to do with a conscious

identity of active being. The Biblical text,

Micah 6:8, “to act justly and to love mercy and

to walk humbly with your God” (NIV), clearly

emphasises the active form of “be”.
