The children of Israel had wandered away from God. They had inherited the Promised Land and in their joy of receiving the promise, they had forgotten the true God Jehovah.
God raised up the prophet Micah to speak to His people. He reminded them that He was the one that had delivered them from bondage. He didn't want sacrifices.
God has told us what is required. We are to treat others fairly. We are to love justice and have an intimate relationship with God. He wants us to do what is right and to walk humbly with him.
God's word reaches across the ages and speaks to us today. He doesn't want us to make sacrifices to Him.
He wants us to have a relationship with Him. He wants us to treat each other with love the kind of love that covers all flaws.
