What does He require?

"With what shall I come before the Lord,
And bow myself before the High God?

"Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings,
   With calves a year old?
      Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,
         Ten thousand rivers of oil?
            Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression,
               The fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?

"He has shown you, O man, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you
But to do justly,
To love mercy,
And to walk humbly with your God?" Micah 6:6-8

I want to better grasp justice, better appreciate mercy, and walk more joyfully with my God.
