Well, today is Halloween! I'm not too excited about it, because it's my first Halloween without candy. Halloween without candy?! It's a travesty, I know, but I'm on a sugar free diet and I have to deal with it, especially since I cheated a few days ago and got sick. Not going to do that again. Anyway, since today is Halloween, I wanted to dress my pup, Lola, up in her ladybug costume (but Ma couldn't find it) so her Halloween handkerchief will have to do. By the way, if you've seen pictures of her in previous posts, you may not recognize her (she went to the groomer...I prefer her fluffy...I think she does too...it's much warmer).
So enough of all that Halloween stuff. Today I went to read my Bible on YouVersion and the "verse of the day" was one of my favorite verses. I thought it was appropriate that I'd share it with you. "He has shown you, O mortal, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."Micah 6:8. Gosh, don't you just love that? I love straightforward verses. It lays 3 things out that He requires us to do. Act justly. Love mercy. Walk humbly with God. Notice that these three things are actions. They require movement. Act. Love. Walk. God doesn't require us to sit and let Him do all the work. He wants us to be active. He wants to work through us (even though He's big enough to do it all on His own). It's only when we follow these requirements that God's love is shown through us, while being strengthened in Him at the same time.
That's what I call walking in style.
Are you walking in style today?
Today's scripture for the read-your-Bible-in-a-year plan is Luke 10-11.
If you are struggling with these three things, please pray this with me.
Dear God, I know I may mess up, but I want to live my life for you. Help me to act justly, love mercy, and to always walk humbly with You. In Christ's name, Amen.
Have a great day & be safe!
