My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

Micah 2

The people's prophet

Some people plan to do as much evil as they can, but God's plan to to destroy those people, and they can't avoid it.

I am being silenced by other prophets! They don't want to hear bad news even if it's the truth! You want a prophet who tells you want you wanna hear!

But a remnant will be lead out by a King and God himself.

Key verse:
11. If a liar and deceiver comes and says,
'I will prophesy for you plenty of wine and beer,'
he would be just the prophet for this people!

My thoughts:
How willing are we to receive truth even when it's not what we wanna hear? So often in our Christian lives we only accept the parts which we like, rather than taking it all together. A pick-and-mix faith is completely illogical if you have any respect for a real God, rather than a God who's just a good idea!
