Walk humbly with your God
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
Oh it sounds so simple, be just, have mercy and walk humbly with God. We all have good intentions, but we also have the human frailties of acting without thinking. I believe I have an idea of what being humble means, but I know that words can come out without thought; my focus may be misaligned or self-centered.
Words are like toothpaste, once out you can’t squeeze them back into the tube. Gratefully, God shows us mercy and we should try to do the same to our fellow men and women. Sometimes things happen and we don’t even realize that we have offended or mistreated someone. Keeping this verse in my mind I hope will help to make me more thoughtful and humble.
Prayer: God teach me to walk humbly with you, remind me to have mercy and to be just in my actions and words and decisions. Amen.
