Job's suffering and subsequent restoration teach us three important truths: Forgiveness is worth asking for, justice is worth waiting for, and there is no mercy without justice. God sees Job's heart and uses him to restore his friends who have so misrepresented God's intentions. What emerges is a picture of the cross -- God's justice satisfied and mercy revealed.

Protect yourself from lying preachers. Check their message with all of Scripture. Check the fruit before you buy the tree. The majority can be dead wrong. Never confuse God's patience with His approval.

If you are parenting in the worst of times, or want to get ready for parenting in the worst of times, or simply want hope in the worst of times, look at Micah and look at Jesus and take this posture: brokenness because of your sin, and boldness because of Christ. Then in the power of the Holy Spirit, set your heart on being the best imperfect parent you can be for Jesus' sake....

Many people perceive God as unfair and unpleasable. God delights in mercy, grace and forgiveness. Micah in encourages us to use our power in a fair and just way, to love to be loving-especially the hard to love, to have consistent, unwavering faith and a proper view of self.
