Logos: Micah 6:1-8

Hear what the Lord says.
Stand up and try to defend yourself.
Rise, and plead your case to the mountains themselves.
Speak, and let the hills hear your voice.
Listen to what the Lord says.

God speaks.
God tells of the injustice and sin that God sees.
God speaks,
and it may be 
that only the mountains are listening.
Open your hearts and hear what the Lord says.

If we listen, we may hear God.
We may learn that God has been at work.
In history.
In the lives of God's people.
In our very own lives.
We may recognize God's saving hand at work.
If we listen.
If we believe.

And when we do, 
When we are humbled by God.
We ask,
"How do I repay you?
What offering do you require?"
And we fall.
In failure.
In acknowledgment of our debt.

And the mountains tell us.
God's word echoes to us.
"I have given you grace.
I have already saved you.
Respond with grace.
Do justice.
Love mercy.

Walk with me."
