Reflecting on God’s Word . . .

Micah 6:6-8 NLT

[6] What can we bring to the LORD? Should we bring him burnt offerings? Should we bow before God Most High with offerings of yearling calves?

[7] 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?

[8] No, O 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.

Reflection . . .

Verse 8 is perhaps one of the most well known verses of the minor prophets. For God’s people it was and still is His desire for us . . .

He has told us what is Good!

This is what He requires of us:

  • Do what is right!
  • Love mercy!
  • Walk humbly with God!

If we do these three things, we will always be on the right track and in right relationship with God and with others!
