Micah ends his prophecy with a beautiful hymn to the glory of God. He begins, Who is a God like you? The point is that Yahweh is God alone and is most glorious. What is it about God that makes him so glorious?
Our text today continues to look at the consequences of Israel’s sin. Sin is not pretty. It never is. Even for us believers, God may forgive our sin, but there often remain consequences for our sins in this life. Sin brings about a great deal of suffering, even for those of us who are Christians. We may make one mistake in haste or poor judgment, and that sin will cost us for years and years. This morning, the Scriptures continue to teach us about the ugliness of sin.
