Micah 6:8 He has shown thee, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of thee?…but to do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with thy God.
Do: act, live, perform
Justly: honestly, truthfully, morally
Do justly = live honestly and morally
Love: care for, have heart for, be passionate about
Mercy: kindness, gentleness, forgiveness, empathy
Love mercy = live with a passionate kindness
Walk: live, follow, trail, enjoin
Humbly: lowly, realistic, truly
Walk humbly = live humbly before your Creator, knowing you are but dust and He is the I AM
Trying to follow all three steps every day of your life will be hard, difficult, trying, a struggle and impossible!
On the other hand, as we fade away physically, we must take on spirituality. Don’t be disheartened! The physical body will fail you; God knows that. Just keep winning more battles than you lose. Learn…grow…take on spiritual muscle. The Spirit wins hands down!
It’s an exercise–growing pains, so to speak. As we shed our physical body with its frailness and carnality, we take on grace, power, and might from almighty God.
While it is day, let go… grow up!
