As part of Spanish School, every student is required to give a devotion in Spanish to the whole Spanish School. Today was my turn, so I thought I would post what I shared in Spanish this morning. Yesterday I decided I want to speak on Micah 6:8, but I wasn’t sure what exactly to say about these verses. Then, I remembered that in college, I wrote a paper on Micah 6:1-8 for my Minor Prophets class. While this was not a devotional paper (it was 19 pages long with tons of footnotes and was mainly about the history and context of the passage), I was still able to use it as inspiration for my talk. In my paper, I made the conclusion that in this passage, Micah is saying that God does not require grand sacrifices–instead he asks only for us to do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly before him. And that’s what I shared today:
6¿Cómo podré acercarme aly postrarme ante el Dios Altísimo?¿Podré presentarme con holocaustoso con becerros de un año?7¿Se complacerá el Señor con miles de carneros,o con diez mil arroyos de aceite?¿Ofreceré a mi primogénito por mi delito,al fruto de mis entrañas por mi pecado?8¡Ya se te ha declarado lo que es bueno!Ya se te ha dicho lo que de ti espera el Señor :Practicar la justicia,amar la misericordia,y humillarte ante tu Dios.Miqueas 6:6-8
Practicar la justicia,Amar la misericordia,y Humillarse ante tu Dios.
