The phrase goes, “Everything rises and falls on leadership.” In Micah’s day, the illusion of peace and prosperity hid the fact that the leaders were the primary perpetrators of the injustices taking place in the land. Rulers used their position to protect their own power and wealth and the prophets of the day were more than happy to proclaim a message that benefitted the powerful—who were also more than happy to use them. The truth is that evil and unjust leaders are a sign of God’s judgment upon a culture. Being prophetic in voice means that we are willing to proclaim the truth of the Gospel against the injustice no matter who is involved. For God’s people, we find that representing Jesus means that the cries of injustice should receive our hearts, our voice, and our hands.
