One Reply to “May 20 — Micah 6-7”
Micah is the originator of good-cop, bad-cop, or at least it seems likely. Perhaps he was the first Southern Baptist. Compare: “You will eat but not be satisfied; your stomach will still be empty…you will plant but not harvest; you will press olives but not use the oil..” (Micah 6:14-15) to “You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea” (7:19).
He’s trying to defibrillate God’s chosen people, trying to shock them back to reality. First he shows them the err of their ways, their pursuit of idol worship and the ways of the godless, then presents God’s amazing grace in the end. Grace extended to the few who will actually listen. Lord I pray that I can consistently declare your truth in a way that this dying world can understand. Teach me their language that I may speak boldly when needed. Help me to remember to follow-up with the hope we have in Christ.
