Micah 6:8 He hath showed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
I just can't seem to get everything done. There seem to be so many demands on my time and everyone seems to want something from me that I can't deliver. I never seem to get caught up to where I can concentrate on the important things.
Do these thoughts sound familiar. We all have seem to let the world and those around us demand so much of us and use so much of our time. Actually God's requirements are very simple and are the things that ought to guide our actions.
Do justly. That is do what is right, fair, and honorable. That really is not something so out of the ordinary for most people that would be reading this devotional in the first place.
Love mercy. Remember it is not justice that we crave. Justice gives us what we deserve. It is mercy that we need and mercy forgives us in spite of everything as we should show mercy to others.
Walk Humbly with God. How else can we stand before Him. He is perfect and Holy. He is righteous and full of grace and we are... well, we are us. That should cause us to be humble.
