2020 Vision: Justice, Mercy and Humility

Dec 31, 2019 2:56:09 PM

"He has told you, O man, what is good; a nd what does the Lord require of you, b ut to do justice, to love kindness, a nd to walk humbly with your God?" Micah 6:8

When I decided to write about this verse as a vision verse for 2020, I knew I had to write about the last section first - “walk humbly with your God” – because that is the basis for doing justice and loving mercy, for doing good in the eyes of God. Unless we are walking with him, doing life with him, filling up on his loving kindness, seeing justice in his character, we cannot do the rest. We put on his righteousness. We love because he first loved us. We are only able to do good because of the goodness he has done.
