Course Description:
What a time to learn afresh what it means to do justice, love lovingkindness (chesed), and walk circumspectly with God! The book of Micah offers hope and assurance for people living in days of difficulty and insecurity. It is a call to all who live in covenant relationship with God to return to the One who loves us. It is a call to live in such a way that demonstrates the character of God: “He has told you, O human, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you, but to do justice, to love lovingkindness, and to walk circumspectly with your God”? Moreover, Micah describes the glorious days of Messiah and the inclusion of the nations. The book closes with a great word of assurance of the unchanging love of God!
