“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Micah 6:8




What is good

has been explained to you, man;

this is what the Lord asks of you:

only this,

to act justly, to love tenderly and to walk humbly with your God.


– Micah 6:8 (JB)






True religion

is not only a matter of formal worship.

It also – it must – involve obedience towards God

and His commandments.

This, in turn, means

practicing justice and charity towards one’s neighbour.


It has been explained to us

time and time again

…and yet…

do we truly follow what the Lord asks of us?


Do I make every effort

to always act justly

or do I let my biases and prejudices

and my personal interests

influence my actions?


Do I love others tenderly and in truth

or do I “love” only who or what satisfies my needs and desires now,

almost ignoring all that does not produce an immediate and tangible return?


Do I walk humbly with God,

or do I only reserve some time for Him on Sundays?

Whether in His “temple” or out in the world

is my general attitude a humble one?


What is good has been explained to me

…but do I follow it?






Lord God, make me truly humble, loving and just. Amen.
