Micah 6:8 He has showed 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.
“To ACT JUSTLY.”
We must do what is right for others, not just ourselves.
Our world is filled with injustice. We must, while administering the law, apply the law of love: Knowing that we will be judged by God with the same measure that we judge others.
“To LOVE MERCY.”
The merciful are promised mercy from God. God gives us grace and mercy and we ought to love doing good as we live lives of compassion. We are learning to serve all, out of love, rather than only out of duty. What do I desire that others do for me if or when I am in the same situation? Serve all, Love all…
“To WALK HUMBLY with your God.”
We must walk submitted to His will.
His desires should be our desires. His will our will.
Are you, am I, a servant of God?
It is much easier to walk in humility with our neighbor, when we fully realize that God loves him just as much as he loves us, even with all of our faults!
