“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
In this verse I find such assurance that our God is a good God. The way that He expects us to treat others says so much about Him.
- We are not to take advantage of others. Rather we are to do what is just and fair.
- We are to love mercy. Wow! This is contrary to the human tendency to pay back and retaliate. Rather, the Lord wants us to show kindness to those who don’t deserve it. This is what He does for us.
Also, the Lord says that we are to walk humbly with Him. I take this to mean that He wants me to:
- Take Him at His Word; believe Him!
- Believe that He means what He says; obey Him!
May the Lord enable us, with the eyes of faith, to know, love and appreciate Him more.
