A Reimagination of Amos 5:11-15

You who cast aside the poor

for your own political and financial gain

may have created comfortable homes and lives

but your comfort shall be short lived.


Christ says that he is present amidst ‘the least of these.’

By putting your feet on the necks of the poor,

you have transgressed against God

and will be judged accordingly in eternity.


But there is still hope for you. Repent!

GIve up all that you have

and become a listener and an advocate

of the justice that the poor demand.


For in these actions, you stand with the poor, with God, in love.

Anything less is to reject God and to embrace evil.
