In this passage we see that the Israelites have fallen way short of the commandment of loving God and of loving others. Through Amos, God is highlighting the selfishness of the Israelite people as they have turned their backs away from God and have been self indulgent to their own needs. Today, we need to rely on God who will provide us with all that we need. God wants us to have an attitude of generosity as we acknowledge that everything we have has come come from Him.

God had brought His people to the promised land and had provided them with security. But some generations later, we see in these opening chapters of Amos that God is not happy with the people and their sinful ways. The prophet Amos now tells the people of God's judgement that is to come. The sins of the surrounding kingdoms are highlighted first but ultimately God draws His attention to the Northern Kingdom of Israel focusing on their injustice, immorality and idolatry. Today, we need to come before God to repent of our sins. If we fall into the hands of God we will have to face His judgement, but if we place ourselves into the hands of God then we will find forgiveness.
