Micah, Day 2 Readings

The Leaders Should Know Better  

Today's reading places blame for God's punishment -- the political and religious leaders who should know better have not expected people to live justly with each other.  Instead, the kings and royal authorities, and the priests and prophets, have allowed behavior.  In fact, instead of condemning injustice, they have offered false words, suggesting that God accepts such behavior.  Judges, priests, and prophets can be bought off -- not only turning their heads from the problem, but becoming part of the this unjust behavior.

Read Micah 3:1-12  (NIV)   (NRSV)   (CEB)
