meet Micah

Here's what I have learned about the Old Testament prophet Micah during Lent: he was a common man from a small village in the hills southwest of Jerusalem. He lived during the 8th century B.C. in a society that was increasingly polarized between rich and poor, rampant with social and economic injustice, and drifting away from relationship with God. His great summary of religion in Micah 6:8 has been a guiding force for many people of faith across the centuries. ' . . . and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?'
