Sunday Reflection: Micah

"With what shall I come before the Lord,
and bow myself before God on high?
Shall I come before him with fervent prayer,
with prayer upon prayer, day after day upon tired knees?

Will the Lord be pleased with
thousands of songs in gatherings of worship,
with lifted hands and ten thousands of hymns of praise and celebration?
Shall I push forward to religious service and mission
my children for my transgression,
the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?"

He has showed you, what
is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?

Micah 6:6-8 [modern interpretation for church folks]
