Oh man, he has declared to you what is good, and what does God ask of you: only do Justice, and to love mercy, and humble yourself before your God.
There are many requests from God in the Bible for all of us who have decided to follow His commands.
Such as Search for him, love him with all your heart, forgive the offender, speak the truth, love your neighbor,
But all these, and many more, we can summarize in these Three: Justice, Mercy and Humility.
Let's analyze these three things that God asks of you:
JUSTICE, but not ours, but what is of God through faith in Jesus Christ.
All our justices like filthy rags; and we all fell like the leaf, and our wickedness carried us like the wind. Isaiah 64: 6.
And we will have Justice when we take care to do all these commandments before Jehovah our God, as he has commanded us. Deuteronomy 6:25.
MERCY: it is the disposition to feel sorry for the sufferings and miseries of others. …. towards others.
Mercy I want, and not sacrifice. Because I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.
God, slow to anger and great in mercy, who forgives iniquity and rebellion, although in no way will he hold the guilty as innocent; that visits the wickedness of the parents on the children until the third and even the fourths.
HUMILITY: It's the abscence of arrogance. It is a characteristic of modest subjects, who do not feel more important or better.
Riches, honor and life are the remuneration of the humility and from the fear of the Lord. Proverbs 22: 4.
Doing what God asks of us ensures a happy life.
God bless you,
