Read Amos 5:21-24 MSG

“I can’t stand your religious meetings.

    I’m fed up with your conferences and conventions.

I want nothing to do with your religion projects,

    your pretentious slogans and goals.

I’m sick of your fund-raising schemes,

    your public relations and image making.

I’ve had all I can take of your noisy ego-music.

    When was the last time you sang to me?

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.


These words grieve my heart today. It is my desire to honor you in the ways I worship and serve You. But I realize that there are times, probably more than I would like to admit, when my praise and the work of my hands is more self serving than representative of true worship of You. Lord, forgive me and change my thinking and my heart. Help me to see and know Your will and to seek to act in ways that represent Your heart to those around me. Let that be the worship I offer up to You. Help me to drop any selfishness as I come before You. May love, justice and fairness be my goal each day. Let the things that matter to You, be the things that matter most to me. Amen
