From the Book of the Old Testament prophet Micah: What does the LORD require of you, but to do justice, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

The Book of Micah, by contrast, is a little ol’ book in the OT, the 33rd of 39 Books, and only 7 chapters long. Micah is most well-known among Biblical scholars for a couple of prophesies, one connected to the fate of Judah and one to the birth of Jesus. But don’t underestimate the power of Micah’s words.

We are all looking forward to tomorrow and the opportunity to join the long blue line of impressive alumni. In addition to graduating from a fine institution like McCallie, there is another side benefit: post-graduation gifts.

No one can deny it, we all love pulling the intricate ribbon off a box and tearing open an envelope to see what treasures lie within. We will be excited to find monetary gifts, material goods perhaps in the form of college dorm necessities, and of course the intangible gifts… love and support for the future.
