Word For The Week
"He has shown you, O mortal, 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."
There is a perception out there that God is only interested in acts of service, turning up to church, saying your prayers, that sort of thing. But this is exactly what God tells the people of God off for in Micah 6. He tells them that their prayers and worship mean nothing if it's not joined to a changed life, a whole life devoted to living God's good and just way. One that prioritises God's justice and mercy being shown to the world around us.
