“He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?”
(Micah 6:8) (KJV)
What’s required of you when you have a job?
Be on time, work hard, help others, complete your tasks and what’s asked of you and among the long list of responsibilities.... A job requires things of you.
School requires some things of you.
Such as attendance and good behavior.
But what does God require of us?
Surely there’s a big long unachievable list huh?
Well although it would seem fitting considering all that God has done for us..... Here in this particular verse He only requires 3 things.
Number One: To Do Justly. “A just life...doesn’t just happen.” We will only live justly on purpose!
Sin is unjust. It can never be justified.
We often do justify our own sins....
It is wicked to do so my friends... Oh be ever so careful to see your sin as it truly is.
Strive each day to live a just life!
Just do it! (Wink wink)
Number Two: To Love Mercy.
Now we all can find is easy to love what mercy God has shown to me and you.
But do you implement mercy in your own life?
Are you merciful? Forgiving? And kind to others?
Are you a merciful and loving person?
To live a just life, you must love mercy.
Have mercy, forgive and be ye kind.
As God has had love and mercy towards us!
And Number Three: To Walk Humbly.
Often our pride is what keeps us from fulfilling God’s simple requirements.
Pride, a rebellious attitude, stubbornness and bitterness will in no wise please God or complete the requirements we see in this verse.
Are you humble?
Are you submissive?
Do you yield to God continually?
Humility will make you one with Christ.
Humility will accomplish wonders.
Humility speaks volumes.
Humility is the key.
Walk with God each day and have a humble demeanor, attitude and spirit. Do justly and love mercy.
God bless •
