Grumpy Old Men - Micah
Seek justice, love mercy, walk humbly.
What’s one idea from the message that stood out to you? Why do you think it grabbed you?
When have you experienced denial? What helps shake you out of it?
How does denial prevent you from moving forward?
Read: Micah 1:2-5, 3:1-4, 5:2, 4-5, 6:1-4, 8.
Micah 1 addresses the punishment coming due to the people’s sins. How do you handle situations where you are told a punishment is coming?
Micah 3 addresses the leaders. Why are leaders held to a higher standard? Does a leader’s poor leadership absolve their followers of their sins? Why or why not?
We are told to seek justice, love mercy, and walk humbly. Why?
What does justice mean to you? How can you seek it?
What does mercy mean? What does it look like to love mercy?
What does humility mean to you? How do we walk humbly?
Which of these three instructions is hardest for you? Why?
For the two principles presented (prophecy is more important for what it reveals about God than what it reveals about the future, and prophecy wasn’t necessarily written to us, but it was definitely preserved for us), what do Micah’s words reveal about God and why were these words preserved for us?
Prayer: Pray that you be shown how to seek justice, love mercy, and walk humbly.
