What does God want? That’s something that many, if not all Christians ask at some point in their walk with Christ. When I told my friend that I was writing this post she said “He wants you to read the Bible and figure it out, easy done bye.” But is that really it? Just read the Bible and stumble through life trying to figure out life? I don’t think so, I think that would lead to us making a lot of mistakes, more than we would normally make as the imperfect humans that we are.
Miach 6:8 says “He has told you, O Man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness (mercy) and to walk humbly with your God?” But just what does that mean? What is justice? What does it mean to love kindness (or mercy, as some translations use.) And what does it mean to walk humbly with God? I think that we need to take a deeper look into this verse to fully understand.
Justice, it means “
Kindness/Mercy, they mean, “
Humble, means “
If we put all of this together, God wants us to treat others fairly, love our neighbor as yourselves, love what is good, love what is kind, and to realize that He is greater than us, so as we are going through our walk with Him, have the utmost respect for Him. Now comes the question that will be the subject of the next post, “What does it mean to walk with God?”
