Amos 5:24(KJV)

24.But let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.

Racism has laid waste to all of us who inhabit the United States of America. How many young people have been made to feel as though they had nothing to contribute? We are all laid waste by that. There are so many who are infected with low self-esteem and insecurity, and act it out by putting down those whose behavior is different. So many people in this country have been deprived of cultural benefits simply because they have been relegated to a world that is separate from others.

“But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an everflowing stream.”

That needs to be our prayer today. Let justice be the clarion call of the people of God in this nation, where tax codes are written to benefit the wealthy while increasing the burden of working class people.Let justice be the mark of this country, where our congress has become so dysfunctional that nothing that benefits the people can be accomplished. Let justice be the mark of this nation, where the color of one’s skin still determines one’s place in society. Let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.

Let righteousness be the goal of God’s people. Not so that we can stand before the Lord and proclaim how we didn’t smoke, drink, or chew, but so that we can lead others to life and to life more abundant. Let righteousness be the aim of God’s people, the righteousness that motivates us to do justly and to do what it takes to create equality for all races in America. Let righteousness be our goal and intent. The kind of righteousness that elects honest leaders, builds strong schools, reaches out to guide young people, and cares for the sick, the faltering, and the helpless. Let righteousness be the goal and the intention of God’s people, so that this country will be a place where all its people, black, white, Asian, Hispanic and any other race … including the last, the least, the lost, and the lonely can find liberty, equality and support.


God bless you is my prayer!
