Text: Micah 6, 7
Highlights: The beginning of today’s reading is somewhat like Hosea – God’s heart is opened up and we see how much he longs for His people. “O My people, what have I done to you? And how have I wearied you? Testify against Me.” He then goes on to tell of all the good and wonderful things He had done for them, beginning with the deliverance from Israel. Chapter 6 tells us what God really wanted from them (and from us as well): “To do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God”. Chapter 7 revisits the sin of the people but closes, like we have seen so often before, with an assurance of how God longs to forgive!
Question: 7:18 begins “Who is like God?” a question that is valid in so many areas (God’s power, righteousness, wisdom, etc) but what is the topic in this verse? Micah makes a great point, but isn’t it true that WE should be like God in this area?
