After years of warning, Israel and Judah start falling into bad habits of worshiping false gods and cheating the poor. 
So GOD sends Micah to warn them that GOD expects greater things from them. 
The book of Micah is written like a legal argument, with Micah putting forward God's case to his people.  They are asked why they have forsaken what God asks of them, and are reminded that what He asks is simple... "He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God." (Micah 6:8)

They are warned that they will be judged, and GOD does this by sending the Babylonians and Assyrians to destroy them.  (Do you remember the Assyrians?  God had a plan for them it seems.)

Do good, love mercy,
and walk humbly with your God.
Or you will be judged.
What God asks of us is not so hard, but we struggle so much with it.
Be just today.
Be merciful (and loving) today.
Be humble today.
Walk with God.
