Amos 5:24 Daily Devotional
This verse is God speaking through the prophet Amos. What he’s saying here is basically he wants justice and righteousness more than anything. He doesn’t want just a little justice, he wants rivers of it. He doesn’t want just a little righteousness, he wants righteousness that never lets up.
This is where things get really practical in scripture. We’re able to bring justice to our communities by standing up for the oppressed. We can alter systems by how we treat those who have been cast out. We can bring justice to corruption by pursuing the things of God. Spend time with him and see what he puts on your heart to pursue. Not everyone is going to be passionate about the same things, so listen out for what you feel should be your focus in bringing justice and righteousness to your world.
Help me be a bringer of justice. Don’t let me back out of a fight just because it’s uncomfortable. Help me to stand with the oppressed so we can stand up to the oppressor together. It’s in that that I know you are present. I pray you would be. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
