Today there are multiple, urgent calls for justice, for systemic change—even for revolution! As Christians, we want to know how to think biblically about these important issues. According to Micah 6:8, God requires that we “do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly”. What do each of these three concepts involve, how can we apply them in our lives and spheres of influence today—and what our communities look like if we did?

APPLICATION / CHALLENGE
- Realize that God cannot be appeased through “Micah 6:6-7” sorts of sacrifices and duties! Instead, humble yourself and come to Christ. His free offer is found in Matthew 11:28-30.
- Daily remember the Gospel, read your Bible, evaluate your life, and repent when you sin.
- Humbly walk with God. As you experience God’s love, love others in the same way. As you love others, make sure it expresses true biblical justice.
TAKE ONE STEP
