I came across this verse the other morning during my reading and I was pierced to the heart with conviction. As I read it over and over, I came to two realizations: First – This verse is a summation of what God expects of us at the most basic level in our relationships with each other and ultimately, with Him. Sort of a ‘rule of thumb’ to live by, if you will. And secondly – I’m not fully doing any of these things. And if I’m not fully doing these things, is what little I do acceptable in the eyes of God?
