“He has shown you O man (and woman) what is good and what does the Lord require of you?” Micah 6:8

If it’s important to God, it’s clear in His word. What does God ask of me? I can think of several things and it is an interesting word search and list to compile, NOT of what people expect of me, but actually what God expects of me!

In today’s verse there are three specific things He asks of me:

  1. Do justly
  2. Love mercy
  3. Walk humbly with your God

In the margin of my Bible, beside this verse I wrote my application of this list:

            Do what is right no matter who knows or who see you

            Be kind to others on the journey

            Remember you have struggled on the way too!

A parallel verse that I have also cross referenced in my Bible is Deuteronomy 10: 12,13

            “And now, O Israel, what does the Lord your God ask of you?

  1. Be in awe of your God
  2. Walk in all His ways
  3. Love Him
  4. Serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul
  5. Observe the Lord’s commandments”

And this one ends with, “it’s for your own good!”

Pretty clear, I’d say!

Have a great day clarifying God’s expectation—it’s for your own good!

Quote for the day: "Churches are not museums that display perfect people. They are hospitals where the wounded, hurt, injured and broken find healing." (That’s what I want my church to be. That’s what I need your helping in making all of our churches like that.)
