"You promise peace for those who give you food,
but you declare war on those who refuse to feed you." - Micah 3:5
One of Micah's big complaints against the religious leaders was that they were willing to manipulate people into buying peace. The whole idea of this is strange, because Peace can never be bought, but this didn't stop them from trying to squeeze money out of the pockets of the innocents and vulnerable.
In our day and age, is there any difference when you consider how we are bombarded by similar messages - shopping malls, glossy advertisements, catchy sales pitches and promises of happiness come to us all day long. Sadly, we often fall for these false promises, but the sooner we realise that TRUE PEACE can never be bought, the better.
Jesus is our Prince of Peace.
Living in Grace
