6 What can we bring to the Lord? Should we bring him burnt offerings? Should we bow before God Most High with offerings of yearling calves? 7 Should we offer him thousands of rams and ten thousand rivers of olive oil. Should we sacrifice our firstborn children to pay for our sins? 8 No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
Insight - God does not want us to just go through the motions of what we think he wants. God wants our hearts to be in the right place, not only in relation to him but to those around us, and to show the position of our hearts by the actions that we take.
Prayer - Jesus, I know that my tendency as a human is for my heart and mind to drift. I don’t want to just go through the motions of what it looks like to be a Christian but to truly walk with you, keeping my heart and mind set on the things you have for me. Help me to be light in dark places. Amen
