“7Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
8He 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?”
Look at what God calls good. Look at what He requires of us. We are to “do justly.” We are to “love mercy” — notice, we are to love mercy, not judgment ( which belongs only to God ). We are to “walk humbly.” Essentially, we are to be just, merciful, and humble — the opposites of prejudice, judgment and pride.
God is not seeking the sacrifice of our bodies, our firstborn, our valuables. Rather He desires that we show His love and mercy to others.
