To Do Justice, to Love Kindness, to Walk Humbly Study Journal
We are surrounded by injustice and pain. We see it not only in our world but also in our own lives and it can be disheartening and overwhelming. But we are not without hope.
This is what Micah is all about. He is not afraid to get in our face about some hard topics like sin and judgement.
Read Full Summary
Sin – Micah comes down hard on the people of God regarding injustice. He wants Israel and us to understand how destructive injustice is to our relationships with other and that it is an abomination in the eyes of God. He also calls the people out regarding their idolatry. This is a sin we also struggle with today as well. When we love anything more than God it has become an idol and dishonors God.
Judgement – A holy God cannot let sin go unpunished and so a day of judgement is coming, if the people of God don’t repent and turn from their evil ways. This is a hard word. It means that we also, need to turn from our sins and seek righteousness for God disciplines his children.
Grace and Mercy – Thankfully Micah does not end with the negative but points us to the hope that is found in God. A God who is rich in mercy and slow to anger. In God we find hope for restoration, hope for overcoming, and hope for change.
So let’s study the book of Micah together and ask the Lord to help us to “do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with our God” (Micah 6:8).
The Book of Micah is relevant to all ages because it deals with topics like injustice and idolatry.
Children are not immune to injustice. They can experience it at school, at home, and when they are with their friends. Sometimes they are the recipients of this injustice and sometimes they are the ones being unjust.
Another sin that Micah will talk about is that of idolatry. Just like adults children are also capable of building idols in their lives. When we love anything more than God it has become and idol and dishonors God.
Micah deals with both of these sins and shows us why they are so evil and calls everyone to repent and walk in righteousness.
