He has showed you, O man, 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.
When asked what a good Christian looks like, it’s usually answered with things like someone who goes to church, reads their Bible and prays. But that is not at all what God says makes a good Christian. He says you act justly, love mercy and walk humbly. That means do what is right and fair but don’t be such a stickler that you forget to throw in mercy when it is due to someone and to always put others and God before yourself. Always putting others first alone would take lifetimes to master for me but if someone ever calls me a Christian, I hope it’s because I act justly, love mercy and walk humbly not where I spend an hour or two of my time on Sunday mornings.
