Verse of the Day: 'Let Justice Roll Down Like Waters'

By the Web Editors 01-16-2013
I hate, I despise your festivals, and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies. Even though you offer me your burnt-offerings and grain-offerings, I will not accept them; and the offerings of well-being of your fatted animals I will not look upon. Take away from me the noise of your songs; I will not listen to the melody of your harps. But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.  - Amos 5:21-24 + Sign up to receive our social justice verse of the day via e-mail
