A Ruler from Bethlehem
The people of Bethlehem felt scared and hopeless because disaster was coming to their city. Then God’s messenger, Micah, shared good news: The greatest leader the world had ever seen would be born in Bethlehem! This leader would care for all people, especially those who need extra help. The message gave the people hope!
“Then he will take his stand, shepherding by means of the strength of the Lord, by the power of the name of the Lord his God. And they will be firmly established; indeed, from then on he will become great—to the ends of the earth.” Micah 5:4
