What God Requires of Man

With what shall I come before the Lord [to honor Him] And bow myself before God on high? Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings, With yearling calves?….

He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you: Except to be just, and to love [and to diligently practice] kindness (compassion), And to walk humbly with your God [setting aside any overblown sense of importance or self-righteousness].  Micah 6:6-8 ESV

Essentially: Love God, love your neighbor as yourself.
