I will surely gather all of you, O Jacob,

I will gather the survivors of Israel;

I will set them together

like sheep in a fold,

like a flock in its pasture;

it will resound with people. (Micah 2:12)

The prophet Micah writes (or preaches) this message of hope to a people reeling. The Northern Kingdom of Israel has been destroyed. The Southern Kingdom of Judah is being threatened. The people are mired in social, political, and economic turmoil. Micah speaks powerfully into this dark and dangerous time, assuring everyone that at the right time, God “will surely gather” everyone together again, just as a shepherd gathers the flock. This is a promise and a hope for our time as well, and yes, it will be good to be gathered together again. – rc
