Outline For Scripture Union Daily Guide 26th January 2024
God says He wants a mighty flood of justice, not just people doing good occasionally. When homes are steadily supplying good, they become shelters from disaster. When people go out of their way to help one another, those homes become joyful places. Is fair treatment “flowing” in your home?
See the vivid expression of the sin of oppression, injustice and so on in vs.7,12 and 15. In v.12, we see an exposure of social sin.
In v.15 we are urged to “hate evil, love good and maintain justice in the courts”. Some of the causes of the conflicts in Africa are said to be due to injustice.
In reading Amos, one becomes uncomfortable. We cannot help but examine ourselves – be you rich or poor, learned or unlearned. All forms of exploitation are exposed. Is there another biblical passage that can help you understand this passage better? Read Micah 6:8 along with Amos 5:10-17. Read also Ezekiel 22:29-30.
• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?
Lord, help me to heed your warning and repent.
Offer a prayer of faith in line with Lamentations 3:22 ‐ 23
22 It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
