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

Micah 7

Be slow to kick those who are down

I'm so sad. It's like going to the pantry to find no food. Our good people are gone, and our evil is well practiced. But God is turning up now. You can't trust anyone, so I only trust God.

But don't be quick to mock Israel. Sure, she's being punished now, but God will lift her up. The days for expansion are coming.

God will look after us like when we left Egypt. The nations will be shamed. No-one is as compassionate as God!

Key verse:
18. Who is a God like you,
who pardons sin and forgives the transgression
of the remnant of his inheritance?
You do not stay angry forever
but delight to show mercy.

My thoughts:
As Christians, sometimes we feel that God is being mean to us, but we always need to keep that in mind of the fact that we are his people. He treats the 'other' differently, and though he may discipline us, it only makes sense in context of our relationship with him.
