Life Changing Formula

Do justice, love goodness and walk humbly with your Creator.

Micah 6:8

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 everyone lived by those words?

When it comes to my next action or next decision…what if I asked whether the option I was about to choose was “just”? And not only “just” to me…but to others?

Am I “just” in how my lifestyle affects others…not only those around me but even in other parts of the world?

How do my actions affect the poor?

Do I truly “love goodness” and demonstrate it by the way I speak, act and think?

Am I bringing my decisions 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 live…is Jesus.

Spend some time reading and reflecting on his words in the Gospels. Allow them to sink into your soul…and then act in a like manner.

If you are a Christian…then you are called to follow him.

If we did this…we just might find that we are “not far from the kingdom of God” (Mark 12:34).
