Timeless Admonitions for Society

September 24th, 2017 · No Comments

Amos 5:15 (New Living Translation)

Hate evil and love what is good;
turn your courts into true halls of justice.
Perhaps even yet the Lord God of Heaven’s Armies
will have mercy on the remnant of his people.

This one is pretty simple. Yet it is one of those that we tend to forget to or regret.

Hate evil and love what is good. How could we possibly mess up on that one?

Turn your courts into true halls of justice. Again, how could we possibly mess up on that one?

Somehow we do mess up on these. Note that there is a lot of “we” in this post. These are admonitions for society, not just for me. Still, I am part of my society and I have a large role to play in doing what God tells us all to do.
