    Very intresting the word of God came to Amos when he was caring for the sheep not in an office carrying out business transuction,so what lesson can you learn from that as christian we are suppose to take care for oneanother also we should be against the oppression of the poor together misstreatment that may arise
  • Bob k.
    Amos understood how the courts were supposed to protect the poor and administer true justice. Instead the courts were shamefully corrupt.
  • Bob k.
    Amos also knew the history of Israel 's other enemies. He was using his historical knowledge to build a verbal bomb! That History was a type of the destruction coming upon modern Israel. most people don 't know who modern Israel is.
  • Maria
    I was never to aware as now as to the reading of amos it , is a sorrowful passage hopefully with understanding of the holy spirit , God has become so angry that Judgement is passing many during this time and going to destroy many people who have made a mockery of him ,let us hear and know that he is God , before judgment comes upon us now ,like the earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes more than ever , mudslides , it speaks of a earthquake in this passage, all our weather conditions are strange all around the world at this time.
