Micah 6:8 — interpretation of scripture from Eugene Peterson’s The Message

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.

From DSC:
Sometimes, life doesn’t seem quite as simple as this makes it sound…perhaps I make it that way…but there’s a lot more grey (vs. black and white) in the world for me as I get older.  With that said, I still like the way Eugene interprets this scripture.
