What Is Required

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. Micah 6:8 (NIV)

With all the choices we have to make sometimes, it can seem difficult to make the right decision. At times, we know the consequences of our actions, while at other times they come as a surprise.

God gave a plan to help make our decision-making easier. All we need to do is “act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with God.” If each decision we make includes being fair and merciful to others and humble before God, we can’t go wrong. The consequences of those decisions may be hard if we don’t choose what others expected. But in the end, we will meet God’s requirement instead of living to constantly please the people around us.
