Humilty, Justice, and Mercy


Micah 6:8: "He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."

Micah cuts to the chase, and gives us from God the requirement of our daily walk with Him. Those who are on the outside looking in should see a person that has a humble daily walk with God. Our lives should be ones of humility before God and man. How often (and particularly in today's society) do we "toot our own horns." Ever been around a "name-dropper?" Why, if I don't brag on myself, no one else will. Not God's way. No way, no how. [Ahh, come on Doc - quit meddlin'].

Those around us who do not know Christ, need to see a real believer - one who can humbly walk with God, and connect others to God. They need to see Christians who believe in justice, seek justice, and are just in their dealings ---- while believing in mercy, seeking mercy and are merciful in their dealings.

The late Dr. Frances Schaeffer used to say, "Pagans act like pagans because they are pagans." I believe the opposite of this is "Christians act like Christians because they are Christians."Pagans are consistent in their walk - are we?

Today, seek to humbly treat those you come in contact with, with mercy and justice. And, do it humbly before your God.
