A few words to the greedy, the wealthiest, the corporate deserters, the ones who say that those in need are only cheaters and don’t deserve it, the ones who don’t want to look out after their brothers, and feel it’s enough to just…
A Basket of Ripe fruit
This is what the Sovereign Lord showed me:
a basket of ripe fruit.
“What do you see, Amos?” He asked.
“A basket of ripe fruit,” I answered.
…(and the Lord said)
Hear this, you who trample the needy
and do away with the poor of the land…
skimping the measure,
boosting the price
and cheating with dishonest scales…
selling even the sweepings with the wheat…
I will never forget anything that they have done.
from Amos 8:1-6
