The Lord has showed you what is good

Epiphany 4 Jan 29, 2017

In Micah 6, the Lord puts his people on trial in a unique courtroom. It is not a formal hall, with large, decorate columns and pillars, statues, and engravings. It is nature itself, with the mountains, hills, and foundations of the earth as judge and jury, and with him as the prosecuting attorney. However, even though the Lord is the prosecution, we get the sense that his goal isn’t to bring swift justice on his people’s heads. His goal is to get them, and us, to see how good he has been to us, and in view of that, to repent and live.
