An important call to action from the Minor Prophets:
This call is repeated throughout the Bible, and it is essential for living a life that is pleasing to God.
To do justice means to treat everyone fairly. We treat everyone fairly regardless of their social status, race, or religion. It means standing up for those who are being mistreated and advocating for those who are in need.
To love kindness means to be compassionate and merciful. It means putting the needs of others before our own and being willing to help those who are less fortunate.
To walk humbly with God means to live out our lives in such a way that it is pleasing to God. It means obeying His commands and following His example.
When we do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God, we are living a life that is pleasing to Him. We are also making a difference in the world. And, we are helping to bring about a more just and compassionate society. But most importantly, we are pointing the way to God.
If you are looking for a way to live a more faithful and meaningful life, I encourage you to study the Minor Prophets. Their messages are still relevant today, and they can help us to live a life that is pleasing to God.
