What Does the Lord Require?

What Does the Lord Require? by Joan Cook

When thinking about the New Year and what God would have me do in 2017, I look in the book of Micah 6:8. The Bible tells us, "He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you, but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?"

1. Do Justice - stand up for the rights of those who can't defend themselves: the orphans, widows, unborn babies. When you know what is right and do not stand up for it, you are not standing up for justice.

2. Love Kindness - It is so easy for us to be kind and show love toward others. Being kind is one of the basic characteristics of a Christian's life.

3. Walk Humbly with God - Humility is valuing others - not making yourself look big by making others look small. Also, acknowledging that God is God and knowing we look to Him for our being.

If we can do these three things in 2017, we will do well! "Do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with your God".

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray that in 2017, you will do what the Lord requires of you.

On The Go Prayer Focus: The GoTeam Short Term Missions Projects and GoTeam Members. GoTeams are made up of young people and adults who voluntarily go on an On The Go mission project around the world and are making a strategic impact for Christ.
