Micah 6:8 has long been one of my favorite Bible verses. Oswald Chambers challenged me with new thoughts this week regarding acting justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly with my God. Nothing is said about expecting to be treated justly; we are only to act justly. In fact, the prophet Jeremiah (1:8) is told that God will protect his life as a prophet, but not his property or possessions. Chambers says if we expect to be treated with justice, we will lose our devotion to God. I think he is right. Our only concern is to give justice to others.
