“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” - Micah 6:8 NIV
When people are reading a job posting on any one of the hundreds of job sights, one of the headings is always “Job Requirements”.
And in this section they delineate all the necessary skills to be able to fulfill the Job Description or be a successful candidate for the position.
It may be certain education levels, a certain number of work experience years, or certain proficiencies and skill levels that are necessary to be considered for the job.
As we read this passage in Micah today, we see three such requirements from the Lord; to act justly, to love mercy, to walk humbly with your God.
And preceding these requirements, we are reminded that He has already shown us what is good. We already know, He’s already shown us.
For us to do and be what he has called us to do and be, it begins with making Jesus the Lord and Savior of our life. Soon followed by the requirements mentioned here in Micah:
Walk humbly with your God.
Just like Jesus...
Keep the Faith... Carpe Diem
