Daily Devotion: Loving the Good

Bible Reading: Amos 5:1-20

Key Verse: Verse 15 – “Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the LORD God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.”

Key Words: love the good

Amos writes about the fact that man in that day knew he could not get justice, and many good people were keeping quiet. It was the prudent thing to do because, if he had attempted to protest, it wouldn’t have done him a bit of good. The tragedy of the hour in which we live is that we talk about the freedom of the press, the freedom of religion, and the freedom of speech; but there is not much of it left. The news media has definitely become a brain-washing agency. It is true that only he who has money can get a public hearing today. As a result, we do have a silent majority in our country because they know that their voices would not amount to anything at all. We are in a tragic day, very much like the day to which Israel had come. “ ~ J. Vernon McGee

So God tells Israel, “Seek good, and not evil…Hate the evil, and love the good.” In other words, do right, live right, love right. Do all for the glory of God!

Thought: One can’t love the good without hating the evil, nor can they hate the good without loving the evil!!
