Passages About Justice

- - - - - - -

On this day, people around the world commemorate the Christ-following life of Martin Luther King, Jr., who sought justice, and preached and lived a life of love and peace. In that vein, for today's devotional, we present passages regarding justice.

This verse seemed to be a personal favorite of the pastor:

Amos 5:24 (RSV) But let justice roll down like waters,
and righteousness like an everflowing stream.

Other Justice-related Passages
