Amos
"For behold, He who forms mountains, and creates the wind, who declares to man what his thought is, and makes the morning darkness, who treads the high places of the earth-the Lord God of hosts is His name.
Amos 4:13

After Israel's civel war split David and Solomon's kingdom into northern and southern tribes, the northern nation blossomed economically, but shriveled up spiritually. The movers and shakers of northern Israel climbed the ladder of success, while the rest of the Israelites struggled to get by. The rich were to busy working to get more for themselves to be bothered with the poor.

The Book of Amos presents a valuable lesson for us. We tend to think we deserve a certain amount of prosperity. We work hard for what we get. Some even have an attitude that if the poor worked harder they wouldn't be in that condition. But God demands justice for the poor. Amos helps us understand God's attitudes toward the needy as well as reminds us of the Source of our blessings, lest we become prideful and rebellious. God reminds us that earthly treasures are not the goal-but knowing and serving Him is, and He promises that we will find true life in Him alone.

For Consideration


  • What responsibilty does God give us for those who are in need?
  • What can you do to help the needy in your community?
  • Why is it dangerous to trust in wealth?
