You have filled the streets with the dead. Micah 3:1-7

A look at the book of Micah, chapter 1 verses 2-4.


Occasionally some bible reference comes from the speaker and I feel like I got left behind because I realize I know so little about the person or the subject matter; Micah is one of those books. To be honest, there … Continue reading
