Micah 6

The classic passage of this chapter is verse 8.

Another pair of verses reminds me of the recent bailout of the financial industry, 12-13.

In conservative circles, blame tends to rest upon "social entitlements," but more liberal groups have a biblical basis to criticize the greedy rich as well.

Our nation is in trouble, but there is no single locus of responsibility. Sin is sin, no matter if you're rich or poor.

  1. Oh, man, Micah 6 is one of my favorite chapters. I really think you have to start with verses 6 & 7 to get verse 8, because it's an answer to a question that says "look, I already TOLD you!"

    Yum. :)
