Tomer Devorah (3) Hashem's Humiliation

The first perek. The 13 middos (qualities) in Sefer Micha are the (pnimius) inner aspect of the 13 middos in the Chumash. When you respect, admire, and love someone, you try to aspire to be like them in some way. The Jewish people are the children of Hashem, thus we are given the opportunity to see Hashem in a more intimate way, specifically through saying Hashem's special names. The avodah (spiritual work) of tikkun hamiddos (fixing the character traits) is to bring the middos out from within the person. The quality of 'Mi Kel Kamocha' means that Hashem tolerates being humiliated through a person using the energy given by Hashem against Hashem. Creation is a chillul (desecration of) Hashem because it resulted in Adam, a creation that can choose to rebel against the Creator. A cheit (sin) exists in the mind before the actual action. Hashem can express the quality of kina (jealousy) and nekama (revenge), but holds them back.

  
 

Tomer Devorah (2) Expressing The Middos

The first perek. The tzelem Elokim (image of G-d) that we have is in the physical manifestation of Hashem's middos (qualities), but is only truly expressed in the actions that we do. When something presents itself in a certain way but really acts in a way inconsistent with its true nature it is called 'kazav'. Hashem speaks to us through our nature and our talent, wants us to serve Hashem through them. Another understanding of 'kazav' is that it means not living up to our potential. Hashem forgives us whenever we act according the thirteen middos of rachamim (mercy), not only by saying them. The 13 middos as they appear in Micah are called the 'upper secret' by the Zohar because they have a tremendous power to lift us higher than the 13 middos in the Torah. The further we are away from Hashem, the more clear He communicates how much He loves us.
