“6With what shall I come before the LORD, and bow myself before the high God?
Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old?
7Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil?
Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
8He hath shown thee, O man, what is good: and what doth the Lord require of thee
but to do justly and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?”
This passage asks how can we please God. First, Micah contemplates “reasonable” offerings, then unfathomable extremes of wealth. He even considers his child. Finally, he recognizes that anything we can do in the flesh is insufficient. The attitude of heart and fellowship with the Lord is what He desires.
Miss Nibs over at wickfield-writings.blogspot.com has asked me to a couple of styles from Bleak House. I haven’t seen the movie so please do some research before you decide if it would be appropriate viewing for your family. Today’s style is what most of the characters are wearing, from what I can tell. Later this week, I’ll have another version that I think you’ll like. For those of you who were waiting for the Regency for short hair tutorial from last week’s series, I’m still planning on doing it; my model with short hair just hasn’t been available recently.
