The prophets bring us beautiful poetry and powerful challenge. Amos is clear that justice must be established at the city gate, at the entry point, at the first. Everything else flows from that. Without justice at the start, God **can’t even** with our worship…! Without justice, our songs and praises are empty at best, nails on a chalkboard at worst. Let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like a mighty stream.
