This final section of the prophet Micah is written with passion and conviction. It is written against the backdrop of the reign of the evil king Manasseh (2 Kings 21). Four pictures emerge from the text - 1) a picture of the 'detestable practices' which God was particularly concerned about; 2) a picture of judgment yet rescue - God would judge sin, but He does not forget the promises of His covenant; 3) a picture of the heart of God (7:18-20); and 4) a picture what God's mandate for His people (6:1-8). The clear and practical mandate of this section reflects an appropriate response to the message of the whole book. If God really is as Micah describes, then the appropriate response is to 'act justly, love mercy and walk humbly before this God'. May it be!
