Micah 6:8

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



To Do What is Right

Seek God first in your life.  The Goal of this life is to become more like Christ by consistently being in His presence and allowing Him to shape you (see Colossians 3:10)
Actions:
  • Learn to practice "God Sightings" - watch for God being active in your life
  • Prioritize your day in order to spend time with God
  • At the end of the day, review what happened with God through prayer.  Ask His guidance for the next day.
  • Consistently worship God each Sunday (the online video, DVDs or CDs are nice... but not the same as worshiping with others)
  • Get an accountability partner
  • Join a Journey small group

To Love Mercy

Extend compassion through action to others who are in need (not just feeling compassion, but acting upon it - see Proverbs 24:12)
Actions based upon the missions model of Acts 1:8

To Walk Humbly With Your God

Grow spiritually, relying upon God and learning to follow His lead
