Our nation desperately needs God. He is our only hope. We must pray for a spiritual awakening and a true revival of repentance towards God and faith in Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.
I love the Book of Amos and the language he uses to describe justice and righteousness. We need righteousness, mercy, kindness, and justice, and possibly a lot more.
One of the best Scriptures that I have ever read about justice and righteousness is recorded in Amos 5:24. Let me quote it from various translations and paraphrases:
24 But let justice roll on like a river,
righteousness like a never-failing stream!
24 But let justice run down like water,
And righteousness like a mighty stream.
Let justice flow like a stream, and righteousness like a river that never goes dry.
24 But let justice run down like waters and righteousness as a mighty and ever-flowing stream.
4 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.
