If you were to read the seventh chapter of the Old Testament book of Micah, but you didn’t know it was from the Bible, you might suspect the writer was talking about current times. “The godly person has perished from the land, and there is no upright person among them. All of them lie in wait for bloodshed; each of them hunts the other with a net.” And it goes on.
Micah wrote around 722 BC and foretold the coming fall of the divided kingdoms of Judah and Israel. Much of what was happening then seems eerily similar to the state of the world today, especially as it concerns people of faith. Yet Micah remained hopeful. Fully aware of his own shortcomings he trusted that God would have compassion, forgive and restore. Because, as Micah knew, God delights in unchanging love.
