This morning I went for an early morning bushwalk.
Before leaving the house, I did a quick scan of the old Facebook, after Twitter of course, looking for Brooke Fraser Concert feedback and came across my friend Mali’s (who saw Brooke earlier in the week AND actually got to meet her! See her post here) short status update which read
Half way down the track, I stopped at the creek, grabbed my You Version and read Amos 5 in The Message translation.
It’s a full-on verse.
It’s a verse that you read and go, WOAH, don’t mess with God. He is ripping into Israel and is talking right at me.
What I love is this:
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.
Amos 5:21-24 The Message (The last bit of Verse 24)
Oceans of it.
Rivers of it.
Justice and Fairness.
Then He sent His Son to provide it.
Just for you and me, and everyone else on earth.
