Act Justly, Love Mercy & Walk Humbly.

As the New Year rings in there are many resolutions being made. I came across this passage from Micah 6:8 and thought it very well suited how how I want to grow in my relationship with Christ and others this year.

"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."

Read those words again. 

This isn't some inspirational quote from Pinterest or the wise words of a philosopher. These are the words of the most holy and mighty Creator that we serve. When I heard and read this verse, it immediately resonated in my heart. I want to get better in these areas so here is one of my resolutions this year and my challenge to you! 

To Act Justly

Stand up for what is right, even when that means standing alone. Have a moral compass that is firmly grounded by the word of God. Speak honestly and be ready to live radically. 

To Love Mercy

Thank the Lord everyday for the Mercy he shows us, though none of us deserve it. Forgive those who are hardest to forgive; becoming less selfish and more selfless. 

To Walk Humbly with your God

Praise our heavenly father everyday for the gift of Salvation through Jesus. Give all the Glory to God in your accomplishments and failures. Submit to His timing and plans instead of controlling your own life, for it is not your own.

May Christ be our focus this year as we listen to what He plans for us in the year 2014.

Blessings in Christ,
