Verse of the Day: Amos 8:4-6

By the Web Editors 09-24-2013
Hear this, you that trample on the needy, and bring to ruin the poor of the land, saying, ‘When will the new moon be over so that we may sell grain; and the Sabbath, so that we may offer wheat for sale? We will make the ephah small and the shekel great, and practice deceit with false balances, buying the poor for silver and the needy for a pair of sandals, and selling the sweepings of the wheat.’ - Amos 8:4-6 + Sign up to receive our social justice verse of the day via e-mail
