“Learning to Walk”

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”
– Micah 6:8

Recently Murphy began obedience school. One of the first things he learned was to walk by my side. He often had his own agenda and would want to pull ahead or go off in a different direction. I recently saw another dog owner basically dragging her dog who did not want to go at all.

Now that he walks with me, he seems to enjoy it a lot more – I know I do.

The verse above reminds us that what God expects from us – to walk with Him.

Too often we have our own agenda and try to take off in a different direction. – or we just don’t want to go at all.

One thing I learned in training with Murphy was I need to talk to him and he needs to listen. God has spoken to us by His word and His Spirit – and we need to learn to listen. This will enable us to “walk humbly with our God.”

My prayer this week is for each of us to listen and walk more closely with Him.
