Today’s Reading – Micah 7
Where is another God like you, who pardons the guilt of the remnant, overlooking the sins of his special people? You will not stay angry with your people forever, because you delight in showing unfailing love. Once again you will have compassion on us. You will trample our sins under your feet and throw them into the depths of the ocean! You will show us your faithfulness and unfailing love as you promised to our ancestors Abraham and Jacob long ago. (Micah 7:18-20 NLT)
There is no one like God. Micah notes that when he recalls how God has loved them with unfailing love. It is the promise of God that fuels their hope in Him. Notice the metaphor of God forgetting their sin by throwing them into the ocean.
