requires

Micah 6:8 He has showed you, O man, 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.

God has given us knowledge, shown us what is good through his word, his commands, his laws.  He has laid down the path of what is good, laid out in the Book of Law, the 10 commandments, laid out in how Jesus lived his life. 

He has told us what he requires of us - what he wants from us

its so simple too

to act justly (treat people with kindness and fairness)

to love mercy (be compassionate, be kind, serve others)

to walk humbly with our God (not prideful, not arrogant, but to walk in gratitude and love with God; knowing and acknowledging his greatness, majesty, might and knowing and acknowledging all comes from him.

It sounds so easy to do, but it is so complicated at times if we allow our sinful nature to take over.  That is why it is so imperative to spend time daily with God in prayer and reading his word, to continue to learn about him and to continue to remember who he is and to continue to walk humbly with him.

Help me Lord to do so!
