The Right Good Way

Today’s Reading: Micah 6:3-8

Micah 6:8 — 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, and to walk humbly with your God?

God promises to tell us what is good. Israel was living in sin, worshiping idols, and ignoring the Lord’s call to repentance. God was pleading for His people to turn back from walking down the road to destruction, but they acted as if the Lord was annoying them. 

The attitude of Israel’s leaders was “What do you expect us to do, God? Tell us what we have to do to make you stop bothering us.” They suggested offering God ridiculous sacrifices: thousands of rams, ten thousand rivers of oil, or even their firstborn children. They were not taking God seriously. God was not any more real to them than their idols.

God answered His people seriously. He told them what they should do. Do justice—do what is right. Love kindness—love mercy. Walk humbly with your God. Israel was not living according to what they knew was right in God’s eyes. They were living selfishly without kindness and mercy, especially toward the poor, the widows, the outcasts, and the foreigners among them. Pride and autonomy from God were driving their nation to eventual destruction.

God is faithful to show us the good way. He does not hide the right path that His children should take. His word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto the right path (Psalm 119:105). Israel had the word of God but ignored it and went their own way. We have the word of God today and the Holy Spirit within us to guide us in God’s good way.

We must guard our hearts from pride and autonomy—the belief that we can be godly without God—and walk humbly with our God. When Jesus said, “Follow Me,” He was beckoning people to walk humbly with their God in their daily lives, listening to His words, learning from His ways.

“Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by Your truth and teach me, for You are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in You” (Psalm 25:4-5).

"Jesus said, “Follow Me,” He was beckoning people to walk humbly with their God in their daily lives, listening to His words, learning from His ways"

Being humble means acknowledging that we are not perfect and that we need God's guidance. It’s recognizing that everything we have is a gift from God. Our accomplishments, talents, and possessions are not solely our own but rather blessings from above.

Humility doesn’t mean thinking less of myself. It means thinking of myself less. Listening to His Words and learning from His ways!

Thank you,  Jesus!

“예수님은 “나를 따르라”고 말씀하셨습니다. 그분은 사람들에게 일상 생활에서 겸손하게 하나님과 동행하고 그분의 말씀을 듣고 그분의 길에서 배우라고 손짓하셨습니다.

겸손하다는 것은 우리가 완벽하지…
