"Justice, in Amos, is the solution; it is what the community should (must) seek. Justice is about life. Let justice roll down like waters, like an ever-flowing stream (5:24). Water is the basis for life. Injustice is like wormwood; it is a poison. Justice is like water; it is a life-giving force. Judgment is not "justice"-it is what happens when there is no justice. Justice is about healing; justice is about transformation, not about punishing."
