A True Servant – Micah 6:8

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Micah 6:8
He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does YHWH require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

I have a lot “favorite verses,” and this is one of them. Three essential elements to life. Justice, Mercy (or loving-kindness) and humility.

Steven Curtis Chapman has a song titled “The Walk.” The chorus went like this.

You can run with the big dogs
You can fly with the eagles
You can jump through all the hoops
And climb the ladder to the top
But when it all comes down
You know it all comes down to this
Do justly, love mercy
Walk humbly with your God

Justice, Mercy (or loving-kindness) and humility. No matter how important you think you may be, your not so big that you don’t have to act justly to others. No matter how many times someone offends you, you are still supposed to give mercy as you want it given to you. And no matter how many times the Father may have used you in the past, humility is always a mark of a true servant.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.
