Act Justly - Love Mercy and Walk Humbly

Micah 6:8

New International Version (NIV)

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.

“Act justly”  living with a sense of right and wrong. 

“Love mercy”    God expected His people to show love to their fellow man and to be loyal in their love toward Him, just as He had been loyal to them 

“Walk humbly” Instead of taking pride in what we bring to God, we humbly recognize that no amount of personal sacrifice can replace a heart committed to justice and love.

The response of a godly heart is outward (do justice), inward (love mercy), and upward (walk humbly).
