Justice: Amos 5:24

24 I want you to treat others fairly.
    So let fair treatment roll on
    just as a river does!
Always do what is right.
    Let right living flow along
    like a stream that never runs dry!

Amos 5:24 (NIRV)

Amos was a shepherd who had a vision about Israel back in the 8th Century BC. He wanted the people to know that God wasn’t impressed with how the rich and powerful were taking advantage of the poor. Amos called for repentance. He wanted the people to realize God wanted justice to roll like a river, always doing right. For righteousness to prevail, and justice flow like a stream that never runs dry. To have a return to true worship and following God’s commandments. For justice not to be obstructed but to be fair for all. A timely message.

Do you know what I want?
    I want justice—oceans of it.
I want fairness—rivers of it.
    That’s what I want. That’s all I want.

Amos 5:24 (MSG)

Prayer: Our Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your guidance and forgiveness. Teach us to be fair, caring, and to do what is right; let justice roll like a river. Let your Word guide us, and direct us in our dealings with others. Help us to realize and do what is right in Your eyes. Like the open and vibrant blooms of the chrysanthemum, let us be open-hearted and vibrant in our love. Guide us in Your truth. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen

  1. “ I want justice—oceans of it.
    I want fairness—rivers of it.
    That’s what I want. That’s all I want.”
    That verse is a cry for today too.
    In a time when we feel the world going crazy may we treat others fairly, with love and kindness and bring His name glory.
    Thank you Jeanne for this beautiful word today 🤗.
