Here are some words from today’s Old Testament reading, from the prophet Micah: ‘What does the Lord require of you, but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?’

The word translated here as ‘kindness’, also means pity, or mercy. We are asked to love mercy, and to be humble in our daily walk with our God.

Here is a lifetime’s programme for each one of us! May we persevere in it, and may God bless all our endeavours for Him.
