God’s Justice + Righteousness || Amos 5:18–24

(Conwill, Houston, 1947–2016. Let Justice Roll Down Like Waters, from Art in the Christian Tradition, a project of the Vanderbilt Divinity Library, Nashville, TN. http://diglib.library.vanderbilt.edu/act-imagelink.pl?RC=57768 [retrieved November 3, 2020].

  • What is injustice? Share an example you have witnessed or experienced.
  • What is justice? What does it look like? How does it make people feel?
  • What is righteousness? In what ways is it similar or different from justice?
  • What do you think “self-righteousness” is? Do you think it is possible for a human to ever have “God-righteousness” instead? How?
  • “God Says” —play “Simon Says” and practice being “righteous”
  • Take a hike with your family. Reflect on difficult, rocky or slippery portions of the hike and think about what keeps you up-right, keeps you from falling. How can we think about God in this way?
  • Draw this waterfall to remind you of Amos 5:24 — “But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!” (NIV)
