Good morning. I’m baaaack.
Amos 2.4-5 “This is what the Lord says: ‘For three sins of Judah, even for four, I will not turn back my wrath. Because they have rejected the law of the Lord and have not kept his decrees, because they have been led astray by false gods, the gods their ancestors followed, I will send fire upon Judah that will consume the fortresses of Jerusalem”
Thought of the day: Amos taught that blessings or judgment from God are relative to how we respect God’s laws. As I see it, the American culture is heading down a path that leads to God’s judgment. To illustrate, let me refer you to the 10 commandments recorded in Exodus 20. Tell me honestly, how many of them do you see being consistently honored in our culture? You don’t have to openly oppose God’s laws in order to reject them. You only need to ignore them.
Deuteronomy 6.3 teaches that God blesses the people who obey his words. Do you want to know how to change the culture of an entire community? It changes one person at a time. It changes when people like you and me take God’s laws seriously. Read them. Study them. Internalize them. Practice them. Our culture depends on it. As a matter of fact, your soul depends on it.
