VerseD: Amos 5:24

But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
Amos 5:24, ESV

As Paul said, without love and mercy, spreading justice to those in need, especially the justice of God, we are only making more noise in the world.

Be a refreshing cup of water to someone, according to God’s love.

Be strong in the power of Christ.

2 CORINTHIANS 4:7‭-‬9, NASB

God has chosen to dwell in us by the Holy Spirit. The world hates God, but we know He ultimately wins. Do not fear the world.
