WHAT IS GOOD
By Dr. and Mrs. Elias E. Hidalgo
'He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God'? (Micah 6: 8).
How often have we heard these words? 'I just don't know what to do'.
In life there are certain decisions one must make in order to facilitate either a goal or an end result to a complex situation.
And as we all can agree 'life' is full of ups and downs that seem, at times to be full of perplexities that hinder us from knowing where to turn or how to accomplish our tasks.
Well, the answer to all of our dilemmas can be found in 'The Word of God'.
If only we will open the holy book and read and search as the Lord Jesus reminds us in John 5: 39,
'Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me'.
In reality, our search will ultimately lead us to know and understand 'What is good', as it can be objectively described by these three statements found in Micah 6: 8,
I- 'do justly'
II- 'love mercy'
III- 'walk humbly'
All of the above is of course before and 'with thy God'
Now, to 'do justly', simply means to: act or be in conformity with what is morally upright or good.
To 'love mercy', is to exercise ones life towards others in the manner that we would have them treat us.
To 'walk humbly', can be understood with a Scripture found in Matthew 23:11-12,
'But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.'
Surely there are many other wonderful reminders of 'What is good' found in Holy Writ, but this will suffice in helping us in our complex and difficult life that we have before us as we daily strive to please the Almighty God and love our neighbor as ourselves.
We conclude with this wonderful promise given to the Nation of Israel and also to the world,
Mark 12:28 And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?
12:29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
12:31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
