Verse of the Day: Amos 6:4-7

By the Web Editors 11-14-2013
Alas for those who lie on beds of ivory, and lounge on their couches, and eat lambs from the flock, and calves from the stall; who sing idle songs to the sound of the harp, and like David improvise on instruments of music;  who drink wine from bowls, and anoint themselves with the finest oils, but are not grieved over the ruin of Joseph! Therefore they shall now be the first to go into exile, and the revelry of the loungers shall pass away. - Amos 6:4-7 + Sign up to receive our social justice verse of the day via e-mail
