But he’s already made it plain how to live, what to do,
what God is looking for in men and women.
It’s quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor,
be compassionate and loyal in your love,
And don’t take yourself too seriously—
take God seriously.
God is in a good mood and has already shown us how to live. Our Master Jesus challenges us to love — Love God and love our neighbor.
It also helps to take God seriously. God is God and he is in control. God shows us his goal for our lives. We must change our minds (repent) and put Jesus and others first.
