Brief Commentary - "God Has a Complaint Against His People" - (Life Study Application Bible) - Michah 6:

"God continued to be kind to his forgetful people but their short memory and lack of thankfulness condemned them.  When people refuse to see how fortunate they are and begin to take God's gifts for granted, they become self-centered.  Regulary remember God's goodness and than him.  Remembering God's past protection will help you see His present provision.

Israel responded to God's request by trying to appease him with  sacrifices, hoping He would then leave them alone.  But sacrifices and other religious rituals aren't enough; God wants changed lives.  He wants His people to be fair, just, merciful and humble.  God wants us to become living sacrifices and not just religious deeds, but living right.  It is impossible to follow God consistently without tranforming love in our hearts.  

People have tried all kinds of ways to please God but God had made His wishes clear: He wants His people to be fair, just, merciful and to walk humbly with Him.  In your efforts to please God, examine these areas on a regular basis.  Are you fair in your dealings with people?  do you show mercy to those who wrong you?  Are you learning humility?"
