The Lord has said what is good

The Word

What can we bring to the Lord? What kind of offerings should we give him? Should we bow before God with offerings of yearling calves? Should we offer him thousands of rams and ten thousand rivers of olive oil? Should we sacrifice our firstborn children to pay for our sins? No, oh people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God. (Micah 6:6-8)

Thought

Someone once asked why God’s will was so difficult to understand. Certainly the details of our individual journeys may differ, but I believe God has clearly placed the generalities of his will for all to see. Some we can draw from the above passage:

To do what is right throughout the day, living in accordance with the principles, standards, and the liberating life revealed in God’s Word, through the facilitating power of his Holy Spirit. To love mercy and to see the world and those within it as the Lord does. And, to live a life of humility before the Father as did Jesus Christ.

Prayer

Father it is my desire to worship you throughout this day. Your Word has given detail as to what honors you and thus displays worship toward you. Guide me in the right decision of each choice facing me. May I embrace your heart of mercy in all that I do today, and may I be found walking in genuine humility as defined by you. Amen.
