Micah 6:3-8

3 04 2012

Micah 6:3) “O My people, what have I done to you? And how have I wearied you? Testify against Me.
Micah 6:4) For I brought you up from the land of Egypt, I redeemed you from the house of bondage; And I sent before you Moses, Aaron, and Miriam.
Micah 6:5) O My people, remember now What Balak king of Moab counseled, And what Balaam the son of Beor answered him, From Acacia Grove to Gilgal, That you may know the righteousness of the LORD.”
Micah 6:6) With what shall I come before the LORD, And bow myself before the High God? Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings, With calves a year old?
Micah 6:7) Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, Ten thousand rivers of oil? Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, The fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
Micah 6:8) He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God?


That sounds familiar, I mean I’ll be walking along in my sin and enjoying it… just going yo-di-do-di-do; and suddenly God say, “Hey! Don’t do that.” And will yank the road out from under me, and I’ll be mad at God saying, “Hey why’d you do that, I’m a good person. I go to Church (once a week), I pray (every so often), and I read my Bible (a few times a week/month).”

Many times I was quick to blame God, my parents, my teachers, my friends, or even some times the government… rather than take responsibility for my own bad choices, my sins are somehow not my fault. But eventually when we fall, we usually hit our knees and ask for God’s forgiveness which he always gives. So remember when you fall He’s always there to pick you up.
