Micah 6

The classic passage of this chapter is verse 8.

Another pair of verses reminds me of the recent bailout of the financial industry, 12-13.

In conservative circles, blame tends to rest upon “social entitlements,” but more liberal groups have a biblical basis to criticize the greedy rich as well.

Our nation is in trouble, but there is no single locus of responsibility. Sin is sin, no matter if you’re rich or poor.

Israel will be under attack, but a leader from Bethlehem will lead the nation to victory.

This is a great chapter to reflect upon on Christmas day.
