The Lord has shown you what is good, what is required of you. Is it a sacrifice in hand? Something of great value such as our firstborn? No. Nothing from our hands changes God. In fact, that is the point. We need to change, not God. As recipients of his loving kindness we are called to love God in return, to reciprocate his love. Without disparaging formal worship and offerings, Micah reminds us that love from the heart for God will result in justice, loving kindness and walking humbly with our God.
