You have been told, O mortal, what is good, and what the Lord requires of you: Only to do justice and to love goodness, and to walk humbly with your God.
What if we kept these words with us as a gut-check for everything we did? When it comes to my next action or next decision…what if I asked whether the option I was about to choose was “just“? What if I examined whether it would be a way of showing that I “love goodness“? Am I bringing this decision before God and admitting that I don’t know the clear-cut answer all the time but am humbly asking God to show me the way? One person who demonstrated for us how to do this is Jesus. Read His words…allow them to sink in and then act in a like manner. We just might find that we are “not far from the kingdom of God” (Mark 12:34).
