And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.
This is a small excerpt of a larger chapter when God was chastising Israel - but the message in verse 8 is so strong.
My son is constantly asking me what it means to have faith and to live his life as God commands. We go over several examples, but I have been coming back to this one lately - not just for him, but for me. I struggle with being non-judgmental (what mother doesn't consider her parenting superior?!), merciful AND humble.
I've been reflecting on this so much and working to bring these qualities into my daily life and especially my walk with God. The more I learn, it seems the less I know!
