3 Things God Requires

“What does the Lord require of you,

To act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with your God.”

-Micah 6:8

  • Act Justly
  • Love Mercy
  • Walk Humbly

Such an odd combination; justice, mercy and humility. Yet they go together so well.

Justice needs humility to show mercy.

When we become self righteous, we are unable to distinguish between getting what we deserve and giving what is needed.

In our justified anger, are we humble enough to try to see the other’s point of view?

Are we willing to give up our “rights” to grant mercy?

Lord,

Teach us to act justly,

Love mercy,

And walk humbly.

Amen.
