TEXT: Micah3(KJV)
3:1. And I said, Hear, I pray you, O heads of Jacob, and ye princes of the house of Israel; Is it not for you to know judgment?
3:2. Who hate the good, and love the evil; who pluck off their skin from off them, and their flesh from off their bones;
3:3. Who also eat the flesh of my people, and flay their skin from off them; and they break their bones, and chop them in pieces, as for the pot, and as flesh within the caldron.
3:4. Then shall they cry unto the LORD, but he will not hear them: he will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings.

3:5. Thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him.
3:6. Therefore night shall be unto you, that ye shall not have a vision; and it shall be dark unto you, that ye shall not divine; and the sun shall go down over the prophets, and the day shall be dark over them.
3:7. Then shall the seers be ashamed, and the diviners confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God.
3:8. But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.

3:9. Hear this, I pray you, ye heads of the house of Jacob, and princes of the house of Israel, that abhor judgment, and pervert all equity.
3:10. They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity.
3:11. The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say, Is not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us.
3:12. Therefore shall Zion for your sake be plowed as a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain of the house as the high places of the forest.

Anglican Daily Fountain 24th October 2023 STUDY:

Leadership, at all levels, is expected to be just and rule in the fear of the Lord (2 Sam. 23:3). Unfortunately, today, in the Church and secular world, leaders are unjust, selfish, self-centered and insensitive to the needs and plight of the people they rule over. In our text today, we see rulers of God’s people, (vv. 1-4, 9-10), as well as prophets and priests (vv. 5-7,11-12)who were after their own interests.

Are you a leader at any level? Remember that it is God who put you in that leadership position in order to help make life better for the people. If you are after your own interests, you will give account of how you abuse that God-given leadership responsibility entrusted unto you, one day. Just as God judged the unjust leaders in our text, He will also judge you one day.

PRAYER: O Lord, help me to be just and walk in your fear as a leader in Jesus name, Amen.
