“He has shown you O man, what is good…”         Micah 6:8
Just kind of passing through the Old Testament right now stopping at marked passages and reminding myself why I underlined or highlighted them. We used to sing this song when praise music first began, and I still enjoy the tune and the message. So clear, so concise, so right on!
“He has shown you O man, what is good, and what does the Lord require of you?
1.            To do justly
2.            To love mercy
3.            To walk humbly with your God.”
That’s it! That’s all Micah said God’s people needed to understand the journey of a child of God through life while I wait for the return of Jesus and the promised eternal life! Three things:
1.            Do what is right
2.            Do what is kind
3.            And do it all with a right attitude about who God is (and who I am not!)
I wonder what would happen if I patterned my life after those three criteria? No I don’t; I think I know. If it’s important to God, it’s clear in His word. It can’t get much clearer than this, so I conclude it must be THAT important to Him.
Have a great day in justice, mercy and humility,
Pastor Rich
