What God expects
“And what does the LORD require of you, but to do justice, love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6:8).
Seven centuries later John the Baptist challenged his listeners.
When tax collectors asked what repentance would mean for them, John answered, “Collect no more than what you have been ordered to” (Luke 3:13). Do justice!
To the crowds John said, “The man who has two tunics is to share with him who has none . . .” (3:11). Love kindness!
John also warned that they should not boast, “We have Abraham for our father” when what they truly needed was to repent (3:8). Walk humbly with your God!
How we respond
The Micah Principle governs how we treat others and how we respond to God.
It is so powerful!
