Read it! Amos 7
This is what the Lord showed me:
The Lord was standing by a wall that had been built true to plumb,
with a plumb line in his hand.
And the Lord asked me, “What do you see, Amos?”
“A plumb line,” I replied.
Then the Lord said, “Look, I am setting a plumb line among my people Israel;
I will spare them no longer.”
Think it through
I love how the Lord gives us images we can understand amidst so much that we cannot. From Moses’ histories to the Prophets’ warnings, and from Jesus’ parables to Paul’s letters, God uses relatable images to make things real to us. When we take the time to really study His word and enter into the setting and context, we can see and feel exactly what He intended!
