For All Humanity

Curious what God wants from you? Here’s a start. Fear God. Keep His Commandments. There ya go. Have a good day!

Solomon as ever keeps things succinct and pithy. You may have a hundred questions for him. Which God? What commandments? How can I know for sure if God even exists? How did Solomon know? Is He right?

Micah says something similar in Micah 6:8 when he says says “o man, you know what the Lord requires of you: to love justice, to seek mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.”

When the Pharisees asked Jesus what the two most important commandments were, He responded in a similar fashion: love the Lord thy God with you heart, soul, mind, and strength. The second is like unto it, love your neighbor as yourself.

What does God want from you? Want from all of humanity? If we only had these three passages, we would have a good, decent society. He wants us to love Him and play well together. Isn’t that really what every parent wants? Funny. We could have figured this out if we thought about. Thankfully we have a Heavenly Father who doesn’t keep us in the dark. He freely tells us what we need to know. Maybe not everything we want to know, but what we need.

Have a great day for worship today!
