Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and I will forgive their sins and restore their land.
The lack of morality and having no relationship with God is what’s wrong with our society today. How do we fix it? We humble ourselves, pray, seek God, and turn from our wicked ways. If we do these things God will hear us, forgive us, and heal our land. To change the world, we must first change ourselves.
What does the Lord require of you? To do justice, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
This is what God wants, for you to treat others fairly, behaving morally righteous, showing compassion and forgiveness even to those who don’t deserve it. Be respectful, gentle, and live modestly, not thinking too highly of yourself. You don’t always have to behave the way you feel, but you should always behave in a way that pleases God.
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
If your life feels out of control, in turmoil, or you feel angry Jesus is the answer. Jesus was a great example of how to be gentle and humble. Follow His example and you will find rest for your soul. Gentle = kind, mild in temperament; Humble = respectful, showing a modest estimate of one’s own importance.
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
Live a less self-centered life by focusing more on God and by being kind to others. Humility doesn’t mean being weak, it’s actually the opposite. It’s being so strong in your faith that you are obedient to God’s Word no matter the circumstances.
