Questions for Reflection for Study of Micah

We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this devotional blog has been created to help with regular Bible reading and study even in the midst of these busy times. Here is a link to “Questions for Reflection” to help stimulate thought and offer ideas for applying biblical principles at work, at home, and in all we do.

Here is a link of all the devotionals done so far so a person can join in at any time and read some thoughts as we journey together. The devotional also offers ideas for using time wisely at this link and at this link is a plan towards making an impact in the world in which we live.

The reading plan below will be used to hold me accountable to sharing about God’s word. As I share about my study of the book of Micah of the next few weeks, it’s important to have a plan. I’m thankful that Jesus is God’s plan for us and by accepting Christ as Savior; we have taken the steps necessary to make this day with God amazing!

Questions for Reflection

Micah 1
How is God characterized in verses 1-7? What can God do to nature when He judges? What can He do to cities? What authority does the prophet have to give his message?

Micah 2
What do those who abuse their power do? How should we respond to them? What promises does the Lord make?

Micah 3
What are the characteristics of the leadership of Israel during the time of Micah?  Do we have leadership in current times similar to the time of Micah? Explain the similarities. What can you do to fulfill your responsibility to warn leaders about the hazards of bad leadership? How can you fight back against bad leaders?

Micah 4
What are God’s plans for the “last days”?  To what extent is your group or nation trying to pattern its progress according to verses 3-4? Do you think it will succeed?

Micah 5
What type of leadership is promised? In what will the people trust for their strength? What is the basis of your confidence about yourself and life?

Micah 6
What does God desire of you? What is the central cause of Israel’s separation from God? In what ways is your life directed by the standards of the world rather than by God’s standards?

Micah 7
What happened to human relationships? What is Micah’s attitude toward God while in a sinful society? What should be your attitude and your response?

Feel free to respond with a short note or a comment about any of the questions above. Also, I welcome any other thoughts or ideas, favorite inspirational videos, photos, or favorite Bible verses. Just add them to the comments or to a Facebook page I’ve set up at this link: This Day With God.
