What is Good?

No, O people, the LORD has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.

~ Micah 6:8 [NLT]

This is one of the most clear and beautiful mandates of the Bible! It answers the question that many Believers ask: What does God want from me? God wants us to pursue justice in our world, love showing other kindness no matter the circumstance or in our modern context no matter what platform we are using, and he wants us to live with humility in community with God. The pursuit of justice is required of us. It is close to God’s heart. God hates sin. Injustice flourishes when sin and disobedience to God’s way is allowed to run rampant in our world. If we want to see God’s will done on Earth (Matthew 6:10) then we have to be people who pursue justice.
