Wesley's Notes for Micah 6:8


6:8 He - God hath already told you in his word, with what you ought to come before him. To do justly - To render to every one their due, superiors, equals, inferiors, to be equal to all, and oppress none, in body, goods or name; in all your dealings with men carry a chancery in your own beasts, and do according to equity. To love mercy - To be kind, merciful and compassionate to all, not using severity towards any. Walk humbly with thy God - Keep up a constant fellowship with God, by humble, holy faith.


Discussion for Micah 6:8

  • MockingBird for verse 8
    This passage is a requirement. Like steering on your car. you are not going anywhere without it !!!! God is just The judgment of God is goodness also severity we are to be imataters severity in a loving way as our Lord. Love to be merciful to also the forward and disobedient , Disobedience needs correction rebellion needs discipline. Walk humbly toward God to not be proud and arragont. Be doers of His word Not hearers only !!!!
  • These are works that the child of God must actively participate in: be not hearers of the word only, but doers. God is calling for us to 1. do justly - make sure we are fair, not partial, nor be a respector of persons, but we treat everyone fairly and with love and respect; 2) love mercy..we have to have an intense desire to forgive people for things they may have done to us or show forbearance towards others - to show compassion; and finally, God wants us to walk humbly. We can't go around with our noses in the air thinking we're somehow better than other people. We should walk with meekness, modesty and with low degree..These are good works that God will write down in His book of remembrance.
  • Father God, we give thanks unto your word, because your word is powerful, living and sharper. Your word works in our lives. We give Glory.
  • Very encouraging and powerful message that can take somebody miles ahead.
