Read: Micah 2:1-13

Explore:

What is the specific sin of the wealthy in 2:1-2? What is God’s judgment in 2:3-5?

What is the specific sin of the false prophets in 2:6-7, 11?

God speaks through Micah in 2:12-13. What image of God do you gain from 2:12?

What image of God do you gain in 2:13?

 

Apply:

The term “remnant” means a small section of God’s people that remains his after exile from God’s promised land. In 2:12, God promises to gather this remnant from exile with the tenderness and care of a shepherd with their flock. In 2:13, God passes before them with the majesty and might of a King. This highlights for us, even when we become aware of our sins, our response is to follow and trust in our God.

 

Pray:

  • Thank God that even with the heavy words of judgment from Micah, God is gathering his people as a merciful Shepherd-King.

  • Ask God that he would grow your trust and faithfulness as follow him in every area of your life.
