Humility In Action

Humility in Action: Lessons from Micah 6:8

"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." Within these few words lies a roadmap for a life built on a foundation of purpose, integrity, and humility.

To "act justly" is to approach life with fairness and equity. When we genuinely accept that our perspective is not the sole truth and that others' rights and dignity are as important as our own, we will demonstrate respect, honesty, and inclusion. I believe that this text also challenges us to hold space and advocate for others who do not have the same opportunities and privileges that we enjoy.

To "love mercy" is to cultivate compassion and forgiveness. We are all human, filled with flaws and imperfections, this should prompt us to be more accepting and compassionate towards other flawed humans. When we love mercy, we show empathy to all because we all have fallen short of the glory of God.

To walk "humbly with your God" is at the core of humility and the Christian life. When we strive to walk humbly with God every day, we begin by recognizing that our spiritual needs are so great that there is literally nothing we can do to meet them--we must rely fully on God. Practicing an attitude of humility requires us to let go of our sense of control and recognize God's ultimate authority, as well as His unending compassion for us. When we act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God, we share HIS LIGHT! I love this text so much, when I was younger we would sing it as a song--some of you may remember doing that as well. But, I recently found a new song that uses this text, I really love it and wanted to share that with you here. I hope you are blessed by the message.
