When we open our bibles we have grown to expect encouragement, words to build us up, hope faith, life. In today's reading, Amos 5: 21-24, we find God using the word Hate. I hate your assemblies, your songs your offerings. Why? because the children of Israel were being glib about their faith , they lacked integrity and had lost the true meaning of worship
If we look back into our past and can see how God has moved, and if we believe His promises and look forward in faith to spending eternity with Him, why do we so often worry about our present circumstances and situations?
