Micah proclaims judgment for Judah and Israel because of their idolatry and oppression, and one day these sins will be no more.
- Idolatry and Oppression – Israel is condemned for their idolatry (1:6-7), while Judah is condemned for their oppression of the poor (2:1-3, 3:1-3). What idols lurk in your heart? Are there ways you are oppressing others?
- Coming Shepherd-King – While judgment is coming for their sin, God will one day raise up a king to gather the people like sheep and lead them (2:12-13). Jesus came to be our Good Shepherd to gather and lead us (John 10) and one day reign as King.
- End of Oppression and Idolatry – Though there may be these sins today, there is coming a day when they will be no more. God will judge the people and restore those who have been oppressed (4:3-7). God will cut off idolatry (5:13-14). Imagine a world free of oppression and idolatry!
