WEiKLY Sunday LESSON B> BR. t, t. HUM What God of Man Micah 6:I-S This is the first of two lessotis on Micah, prophet of sincere religion. GOD'S CHARGE AOAlNSt ISRAEL Mfcah 6:1-5 As is true of many of the Jiher prophets, God placed His *ase against Israel through the prophet Micah. At this time they Were nicked and sinful and God called their condition to their attention. He made them aware of their waywardness. He had an accusation against His people and an indictment against Israel. He began His case with some riiiestions. He asked what He had done against them, and how He had exhausted their patience. Had God mistreated them? Had He done anything against their best intcr- . ests? Had He harmed them in any way? Quite obviously the 'answer to God's questions was .a negative one. God had done Hhem good only, and not evil. • Next God reminded Israel of , His goodness to them. He re- .ferred to their release from the 1 land of Egypt and their redcmp- • tion from the House of bon- Jdage. By these deeds they should *, know the saving acts of God. »There is the suggestion here of • God's mightiest work, in saving ,the souls of those who believe ^upon Him and accept Christ as . Savior. 1 Here is God's case against Israel, "Hear ye now what the • Lord saith; Arise contend thou ' before the mountains, and let the hills hear thy voice. Hear ye, 0 mountains, the Lord's controversy, and ye strong foundations of the earth; for the Lord hath a controversy with his people, and he will plead with Isreal. 0 my people, What have I done unto thee? and wherein have I wearied thee? Testily against me. For I brought thee up out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed ihee out of the house of servants; 'and I have sent before thee Moses, and Aaron and Miriam." WHAT IS NECESSARY TO PLEASE GOD? Micah 6:6-7 The people expressed their de- sii e to be at peace with God on any terms. Being made aware of the justice of God's charges against them, and dreading the consequences, they were inquisitive what they might do to be reconciled to God and Id make Him their friend. They were answerable to God for their conduct. They made proposals as to the possible appeasement of God. They made an offer of that which was very rich and costly, large numbers of rams and big quantities of oil. They also offered that which was dearest of ail them, the first born child. But their offers were not proper. These contributions were not acceptable, These things did not please God. They were not what He wanted. There was some- ling more important and they did not offer it. Their proposals were presented in the form of questions. "Wherewithal shall 1 come before the Lord, and bow myself before the high God? shall I came before him with burnt- offerings, with calves a year old? Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul," WHAT GOD REQUIRES OF MAN. Mieah 6:8. God requires man to give Him liis best. He wants man himself- the whole man, the man wholly. He wants the best of man, man at his best. God requires us to do justice, according to our ob ligation and relation to men. W must do wrong to none, but d right to all, in their bodies jgoods, and good name. God als ! requires us to love kindness I We are to be kind to all wh need us, and to all whom w are capable of helping, We mus delight in d9ing good and mus be glad or'the opportunity o ' doing so. Furthermore God expects us to walk humbly befor Him. He is pleased with , humble and contrite heart.

Lives are !"?* and hndip,- iviaiinod flue to carelefs driving on our streets and highway?. Another daily incident which the newspapers often do r,'it report, and to v.hich Olhcrs arc inditTeri'iit, is the ruining of ]i\es and character in the wretched, un- ediu.-ttpd. and poverty-ridden parts of the great cities in our land. There are those who despair of e\er getting; out of their situation and so,despondency sets in and a Jack of de-fire to strive for uorthiy goals enters the spirit. A lnvinjr God would have us aware of these whose lives, self-rcsnect and character, couid he r-aved — it" we were interested enough. God often impres.-es the needs of His children upon those who attend His church. It is His will that \ve should show forth the love of God for mankind by helping all who arc sufferinc.
