“He has shown you, O man, what [is] good; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God?” (Micah 6:8 NKJV)
What is required? What is good according to God? God has shown us:
- Do justly
Do the right thing. Do what is right to all and do wrong to none. Do what is true and honest. Do what is fair. Do the will of God according to His word. Be true to your word. Treat all the way God would treat them. Doing good is doing the right thing.
- Love mercy
Delight, desire, and breathe after mercy. Love kindness. Desire goodness. Delight in lovingkindness. Seek to be loving and kind. Doing good is showing favor like God and unconditional lovingkindness. Loving mercy is a strong desire to good for others.
- Walk humbly with God
God is God and we are not. Go low with God because He is the Highest. Walk submissively with Him. We are inferior to the Superior, Supreme God. Remember, Satan tried to elevate himself above God and it will land him bound in hell. When we choose to do our own thing, and not what God has asked of us, we act just like Satan.
“Every proud thing that is raised up against the knowledge of God, and we take every thought captive to obey Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:5 CSB)
Walk modestly with the LORD. Give the Lord His due respect.
“Humility must be in the heart, and then it will come out spontaneously as the outflow of life in every act that a man performs.” -Charles Spurgeon
I enCOURAGE again to do good and do God. God has shown us what is good and what is required. He has made it plain and simple: do the right thing, love doing the right thing, and be humble.
