When We Don’t Take God Seriously

When We Don’t Take God Seriously

God speaks, we listen – sort of. It has been a problem since the earliest of days that people of faith often don’t take God seriously. People hear what they want to hear, and even then only halfheartedly respond. The ministry of Micah shows us how important taking God seriously is. God spoke clearly yet people sought after the voices that would calm their fears rather than shake them toward repentance.

As we look into the book of Micah on Sunday, I am praying for a day of great encouragement as we see clearly what God wants from us and the great benefits that come from following him. Read two key passages to set the tone for the seriousness of listening to God, and the blessings of his mercy to restore us: Micah 1:1-7 and Micah 7:18-20.

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” (Micah 6:8 ESV)
