Michah Six: Gratification

Amongst the things that Micah says in this chapter is one verse that I found particularly piquing. “You shall sow, but you shall not reap; you shall tread the olives,but you shall not anoint yourself with oil; and the must; but you shall not drink wine (Micah 6:15).” On the one hand, I see this verse as representing the extreme frustration of being unfulfilled, of putting effort into a task that is never seen through to fruition. 73 more words

Michah Five: Monuments

“And I will destroy your graven images and your monuments from your midst, and you shall no longer prostrate yourself to your handiwork (Micah 5:12).” When I see the word ‘monument,’ as a Washington DC resident, it’s easy to imagine what springs to my mind. 123 more words

Michah Four: Torah

This chapter contains several well-known, iconic sayings. It’s where we have the source for swords being turned into plowshares, nations not lifting up sword against nations, and one verse that brings up many memories for me. 122 more words
