Micah 6:8: “And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
Sounds so simple, right? Except when the baby is crying. Or creditors are calling. The bills are mounting. You’re job searching. You get a flat tire. The grocery store is out of milk!
My challenge for you today: pick one of the Lord’s requirements: either 1) act justly 2) love mercy or 3) walk humbly.
THEN: 1) Pray to the Lord and just thank Him and ask Him to help you be more of that one attribute.
THEN: 2) Pick one thing you will do today to either act justly (e.g. rewarding people at work for a job well done) or love mercy (e.g. be nice to the person not being nice to you) or walk humbly (let the car merge in front of you–you aren’t in that big for a hurry). Simple things towards God’s simple requirements.
