“…walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8b
I’ve been thinking about how that verse captures the heart of the prophets. When asked what comes to mind when thinking about the prophets, I would imagine people would think of God communicating His displeasure with Israel, God foretelling future events through the prophets, and God sharing that condemnation will be coming if they didn't repent. I would tend to agree with that assessment. However, I think the heart of the prophets was to call the people back to loving the Lord with all that they had.
Amazingly, God wants a relationship with us. He doesn't want our religious offerings or our sacrifices to earn favor with Him. I would imagine that would feel like an insult to the God of the universe! Amazingly, beautifully, and filled with grace, Jesus came to teach us, to show us, and to be the Way.
So, I think that means we should walk with Him! To walk with the Lord means:
It looks like walking weather to me, have a good walk with God today!
