“I hate all your show and pretense – the hypocrisy of your religious festivals and solemn assemblies. I will not accept your burnt offerings and grain offerings. I won’t even notice all your choice peace offerings. Away with your noisy hymns of praise! I will not listen to the music of your harps.
“Instead, I want to see a mighty flood of justice, an endless river of righteous living.” (Amos 5:21-24 NLT)
