Proverbs 21 - Righteousness and Justice

We just learned about Proverbs 19 - The purpose of the Lord.

Another famous Proverb is Proverbs 21.

To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice..

In the times of the Old Testament, people would sacrifice burnt offerings of animals to God as ways to ask for forgiveness.
This Proverb says that God would rather have people do the right thing than have to ask for forgiveness!
