In today’s vernacular, "I think Micah would ‘come off in his message like this; Come on, folks! Get a grip on what is the true issue, here! What really matters to God about how you go about living your life? Wouldn’t you think, above all else that it can be summed up in this manner:
(1) Practice justice – unequivacally, (2) show mercy -unequivacally (3) Walk H-U-M-B-L-Y WITH YOUR LORD – UNEQUIVICALLY?
