(Micah 6:8 NASB) He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God?This is one of those verses that seems to “say it all.” I have those days when I feel totally defeated and feel like a total loss and the Lord will bring this to mind. Just “what does the LORD require” anyway? The answer may not be easy to do but it is easy to understand.
I don’t need a long list of do’s and don’t’s. There are three general areas to focus on: Justice, kindness and humility. I don’t need to be a Bible scholar or a college graduate to have a feel for what those words mean.
Read it over a few times. Spend some time in Christian meditation on it. Let God speak to you about how to “do justice” in your daily dealing with people. Think of areas you could show more kindness. In realizing how much better you can do, you move toward humility. The joy is that you get to walk with your God while you are working on these things.
