Can it be that simple? Surely God is asking more of us? The call to holiness is complex, difficult and stupendous? Yes? Well, actually no.
Context is everything. The prophet Micah does just that for us. He tells us today that God leads us out of enslavement to the “Egyptians.” The temptation is to think that our response to this liberating act has to be grandiose.
Well, no. God says, “This is what I ask of you, only this:”
To act justly,
To love tenderly,
To walk humbly with your God (Micah 6).
It’s that simple!
