Easy vs. Good

He has showed you, O man, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.
~Micah 6:8 NIV

Often we choose the easy reaction over the good reaction. It can be easier to stuff away your emotions rather than being honest with someone. It can be easier to explode at someone rather than taking a deep breath & calmly explaining your feelings. Remember, our goal is soul integrity which involves honest with godliness.

But he’s already made it plain how to live, what to do,
what God is looking for in men and women.
It’s quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor,
be compassionate and loyal in your love,
And don’t take yourself too seriously -
take God seriously.
~Micah 6:8 Message
