God is not looking for people to give because they're coerced or because of a need, He's looking for people who will give from their heart. He's placed the opportunity to participate in your hand and now He's watching to see what you'll do with it. VF-1943 Matthew 5:20

We are dead, buried, and raised up with Christ; these are the steps of regeneration and salvation. In identifying with Christ’s death, we die to self, to the things of the world, and to the law. If we seek the things which are above and set our affections there, we will be focused on Christ and not on the things added onto the church by man. VF-2296 Colossians 3:1-3

We are to pay the one who teaches us the word of God, and we will reap what we sow.  God has instructed us to be good stewards not only of our money but also our bodies, His word, and our time.  Jesus commended the widow who gave two mites and the woman who gave the alabaster box.  If we trust Him, He will supply our needs. VF-2334 Galatians 6

The love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Spirit, which makes us givers.  We are stewards of whatever possessions God gives us, and there is no excuse for those whom He has called to be ignorant of that.  He laid out a plan for both systematic and spontaneous giving.  VF-2333 I Corinthians 13:1-3

Don’t let the charlatans who have put a black stain on the ministry taint your view of giving.  God’s not a kill-joy begging for your money.  He wants you to get to know Him.  And once you do He’s looking on the heart to see if the general message has been received, which includes the principles of stewardship and giving: recognizing Him in all that you have and all that you do, because it all comes from Him.

Giving is a form of worship, and it is intrinsically tied to your faith.  You are either a person who would hold something back from God or a person who has been changed by Him and gives without coercion.  Don’t get puffed up in pride over your giving.  God wants you to give with your heart and to have an authentic relationship with Him.  God will bless you in intangible ways, and He will not forsake you.

Biblical giving begins with the understanding that the earth is the Lord’s, and the tithe belongs to Him.  We can learn a lot from the Old Testament patterns: God wants people to give with a willing heart, and worshipping Him should be at the epicenter of our faith and our lives.  We should be glad that God gives us the opportunity to participate and accrue rewards in heaven.  VF-2320 Psalm 24:1, Leviticus 27:30

The close of Micah deals with a future time when the nations will be stripped of their power and humbled, and they will recognize they had rejected Christ and will turn to Him.  God is a forgiving God.  No one else can completely forgive and wipe away all our sins like He can, and He is true to His word.

It is important to reflect on the role of fathers and to recognize the sacrifices they make for their children.  The love of our Heavenly Father is apparent in the story of the prodigal son.  Though the son had the wrong attitude when he left the father, when he came to his sense and turned back to him, the father received him with joy.

Micah paints a gloomy picture of the society in his day: the rulers demanded gifts, the judges accepted bribes, and the powerful dictated what they desired. On top of that he observed a blatant disrespect for God, the family unity, and for the dignity of life and living. He warned the people of their terrible fate and yet, right in the middle of gloom and doom he spoke a word of encouragement: God will not abandon His people. Altho...

Through the prophet Micah, God proclaimed the judgment that would come upon the people because they had departed from Him and His ways.  They were corrupt, engaging in acts of greed and false worship.  God was giving them a warning so that they might turn back to Him.  We need to listen to that warning today.  VF-2344 Micah 6:9-16

In Micah 6, God brings His grievance against the people almost as if He is making a legal case.  He reminds them of His past deliverances and His goodness to them, but they responded with the wrong attitude.  In the face of coming judgment, God still has his hand on His chosen ones, and He is in control.  Will you trust Him?

Micah paints a prophetic portrait of Christ as eternal, everlasting, God incarnate, and ruler, both when He came in the flesh, and when He returns to rule over the whole earth in last days, at the end of time.  Although the picture that Micah paints is one of doom and calamity, we should take comfort in the knowledge that God has a plan for the future, and heed Micah’s warning by putting away our false worship and turning back to G...

Micah juxtaposes the leaders during his time with the Lord of Hosts during the time God establishes His kingdom on earth. While there will be people that will resist the rule of Jesus Christ in His 1000-year reign, there will be people from many nations who will learn from Him and walk in His paths, regardless of their religious background. During Christ’s reign, there will be universal peace, universal religion, and universal pros...

In Micah 3, the prophet focuses on the sins of the nation's leadership.  The leaders oppressed the people and allowed lawlessness to run rampant.  Though they had the power to turn back to righteousness and law, the leaders loved evil and abhorred judgment.  In this, we see a reflection of the state of our own country today.

The prophecies of Micah were addressed to a nation consumed with idolatry and false worship. This is not just a problem of the past, it’s been a problem since the beginning of time, and it’s reflective of the moral, social, and spiritual decline we’re seeing in America today. However, it’s not all gloom and doom. We’re at a turning point, and the prophecies of Micah give us tremendous hope for the future if we turn back to our Jude...

The book of Micah contains past warnings for an idolatrous nation and warnings for the future. As believers, we should look at these prophecies in light of today's society and where we’re at as a people.
