Day 192

Today’s Reading – Amos Chapters 1-5
The words of Amos, one of the shepherds of Tekoa Amos 1:1a
The first three chapters of Amos are part of the message of judgement that the prophet delivered to the nation.

The interesting thing about Amos is that he wasn’t a professional prophet. Amos was a shepherd from Tekoa.

Amos was a simple guy trying to make a living in the suburbs of the big city when God called him. Amos responded by becoming a messenger (prophet) for God for a short period of time.

Responding to God’s call to action in your life does not have to mean a life time commitment. Amos is proof that sometimes God calls you to do odd jobs for a short period of time.

When is the last time you answered the call?

Tomorrow’s Reading – Amos Chapter 6-9


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
