An Important Word from the Prophet Micah

Today’s reading from the Prophet Micah is one of my favorites. If we could but follow his simple admonition we would be able to see much more clearly that we are now living in the Reign of God . . . knowing that it is truly, as Jesus said, at hand.

You have been told what is good,
And what the Lord requires of you:
Only to do the right and to love goodness,
and to walk humbly with your God.

-Micah 6:8

  1. two-way street. To walk humbly with God, we must be on the road God is on. Inviting God to walk with us on the road of our choosing, is not walking humbly. It is walking proudly, on a road we deem more important than the road of God’s choice. God wants us to walk with Him, on the road He has purposed just for us. We must be willing to change the road we’re on and seek after God’s presence on the road He is on. This is God’s plan. Pretty simple isn’t it? We tend to make it more complicated than this because, while God’s plan is simple, it is hard. The complicated, window-dressed approach is really just trying to substitute an easier plan. Yet, it accomplishes nothing but furthering the case God has against us. Instead, we are to keep it simple – act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God. That’s the truth.

    • Thank you for your comments. You’re right – we do make it more complicated than it is. Peace to you.
