The Very Fine Line Between Two C’s

Read it! Amos 6

You drink wine by the bowlful and use the finest lotions,

But you do not grieve over the ruins of Joseph.

(vs 6)

Think it through

God calls out in the first verse of this reading, “Woe to you who are complacent in Zion!” Amos goes on to describe people enjoying their rich blessings, taking personal credit for their successes, and ignoring the things of God. They are complacent.

Meeting Monumental Expectations

Read it!: Amos 3

You only have I chosen of all the families of the earth;

Therefore I will punish you for all your sins.

(vs 2)


Think it through:

Amos is relaying some tough love here, no doubt.

God had granted the Israelites an unbelievable gift of knowledge. They had seen the miracles. They had heard His voice and seen the effects of His presence. His laws were hand-delivered to them on stones carved by His own finger. And yet they chose to ignore Him and go their own way into a sinful lifestyle.
