The Most Important Things

He has told each of you what is good and what it is the Lord requires of you: to act justly, to love faithfulness, and to walk humbly with your God. —Micah 6:8

What’s at the top of your to-do list today? If you’re like me, the list is a mile long. Before we tackle those tasks, let’s pause to remember one simple, unchanging truth about ourselves: we are beloved children of God who are invited to be with Him today.

When we find ourselves striving to “save the day” for God or scrambling to “do it all,” Micah 6 brings us back to the heart of the matter. In this passage we see a person just like us who is frantically wondering, “What should I do for You today, Lord? Should I tackle this and that?” And then, just as He does for us, God reminds the speaker about the most important things in life: to act justly, love faithfulness, and walk humbly with our God.

The Christian life isn’t just a ministry task list: it’s an invitation to grow in Christlikeness and to walk with God himself.

Make it Personal

Take your to-do list before the Lord, asking Him to help you keep the most important things in life at the top.
