What is good
has been explained to you, man;
this is what the Lord asks of you:
to act justly, to love tenderly and to walk humbly with your God.
– Micah 6:8 (JB)
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
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?
REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…
Lord God, make me truly humble, loving and just. Amen.
