Do justly, love mercy, walk humbly.

 Micah 6:8; “He has shown you, O man, what is good and what the Lord requires of you: But to do justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

   I see these three things as that which corresponds to the triune nature of God.

   Do justly – The Father

   Love mercy – The Son

   Walk humbly  -  The Holy Spirit

  The Father is all about justice.  He is the Creator of all things and bears the responsibility of righteous judgment over all His creatures. 

   The Son is the means of God’s mercy for guilty sinners, having taken the form of human flesh, dying a sinner’s death, though He was innocent Himself, and rising from the dead.

   To walk humbly is impossible without the Holy Spirit as our Light, Guide, Helper and Counselor.  By His indwelling influence and power we are actually capable of walking with God in relationship.

   As I write this, I am having a hard time walking physically.  I tweaked my knee and it pains me to bend it or to apply too much pressure on it.  The effect is that easy mobility is now a conscious effort, step by step, with stairs being particularly troublesome. 

   This reminds one that walking with God cannot be done in carless or mindless ways.  We really do need to be conscious of every step we take.  Some being harder than others, but all assisted by His presence.  We simply need to consciously ask and obey.

   I trust my knee will heal.  I trust even more that my walk with God will improve as well.
