- Micah 6:1-8 The Short List (Strayhorn)
ACT, LOVE, WALK. That’s God’s short list. They’re all action words--all verbs, and imperative verbs at that. They’re verbs that ask the questions What, How and Who. What are you DOING? How and who are you LOVING? With Whom are you WALKING?
- Micah 6:1-8 The Right Stuff (Leininger)
“He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Familiar words. Perhaps you memorized them in Sunday School, or perhaps you saw them on the wall of the Library of Congress (they are inscribed there.)
- Micah 6:1-8 What Does the Lord Require (McLarty)
Micah exposed the corruption of business leaders, who exploited the weak. He condemns the priests and prophets for being in it only for the money. But he reserves his most scathing criticism for the hollow religious practices of his day.
