[Mic 6:8 KJV] 8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what [is] good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
Jesus said “call no man good” but I can be better (maybe, hopefully). The verse above encourages me (not being good as a man) to nonetheless seek the good. I am commanded to seek that which scriptural mandate in the words of Jesus insists I cannot be. I am to seek an unattainable goal. Not being good in the first place is no excuse to opt-out of accountability to the Father. He requires something of me, beyond which my path is nothing but aimless wandering. What does He require?
1.) do justly, 2.) love mercy, 3.) to walk humbly with my God.
Full stop. Engage platen gear and return carriage to the left – next line. He is the Light that lights every man that comes into the world and this is what He shows me. Justice, Mercy, Humility. All else as Solomon declared is VANITY and VEXATION OF SPIRIT. If you ever experience a devastating loss this becomes excruciatingly clear.
So there you have it. You keep waking up the next day, the heart is beating, lungs are breathing and the day beckons. It’s NOT complicated. Remember that Jesus is a simple Savior. He wants me to walk before Him with a simple heart and a single eye. Then I can be with Him and being with Him in this life or the next is the only source of constancy and peace. Let’s have that. I am a Prophet and even prophets ask these things at times.
