“And what does the Lord require of you except to be just, and to love [and to diligently practice] kindness (compassion), And to walk humbly with your God [setting aside any overblown sense of importance or self-righteousness]?” (Micah 6: 8, Amplified Bible)
God’s requirements for us are simple, yet powerful. They begin with knowing Who God is and Who we are. God is Love and He is Life. If we are to live true to God and to ourselves, we must honor Love fully. It is our real purpose and our way to peace, joy, and contentment.
We can walk each day, moving forward and onward and upward, as we humbly allow God to guide us. This means letting go of the reins of personal control and yielding to God’s design—one which is harmonious, safe, right, progressive, loving, and so lovely. When we put our little ego away, and rest in who we truly are—the expression of God’s own Love—we are set free in our own lives and have a positive impact on the lives of others as well.
Justice, kindness, and compassion are powerful and also very natural to us. But, we need to be conscientious about our practice of tender affection and generosity. It is easy to get caught up in selfish concerns or a limited perspective. So, we must actively remember to be who we were made to be, and to love, without judgment or fear, because God requires it and because it is where we truly find our genuine joy.
