Life Summary from Bible

Here is a summary of what we should be doing.

Micah 6:8
He has told you, O man, what is good;
And what does the LORD require of you
But to do justice, to love kindness,
And to walk humbly with your God? “

Deuteronomy 10:12
 “Now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require from you, but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways and love Him, and to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, “

Zech 7:9,10
Thus has the LORD of hosts said, ‘Dispense true justice and practice kindness and compassion each to his brother; 10 and do not oppress the widow or the orphan, the stranger or the poor; and do not devise evil in your hearts against one another.’

Zech 8:16
These are the things which you should do: speak the truth to one another; judge with truth and judgment for peace in your gates. “

1 Timothy 1:5
But the goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. “

  • Do justice. Treat people with justice. Help people gain justice.
  • Love kindness. Not only are we kind but we seek it out and work towards being kind.
  • Walk humbly with God. Humility cares more of others, and is not self absorbed.
  • Fear the Lord your God. A sinner will fear the consequences of sin. A righteous believer will respect a holy God.
  • Walk in all His ways. Read the Bible and study to live as God desires us to.
  • Love God. Live in hope and expectation of what He has promised.
  • Serve with all your heart and soul. Serve God with all you have.
  • Love from a pure heart. Have a heart totally for God and don't hold back. Don't make provision for the flesh.
  • Good conscience. Deal with sin and problems right away. Walk in confidence in the finished work of the blood of Jesus.
  • Sincere faith. The motive for faith is to serve God and not self advancement.
