“This verse has become my goal in life alongside a number of other promises from God. There is no greater fulfillment in life than walking closely with my Jesus! 

Micah 6:8: 'He has shown you, O mortal, 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.'"

—Shanti Thomas
