Grumpy Old Men - Amos
God wants you to have eternal life; He also wants you to have abundant living.
What’s one idea from the message that stood out to you? Why do you think it grabbed you?
What experiences have you had with a good or bad foundation?
Read: Amos 7:7-9, 2:6-7, Deuteronomy 25:9-10
Amos 7 discusses a plumb line. Do you compare your actions to others’ actions to determine if something is ok? Why or why not? Is this a good thing to do? Why or why not?
Amos 2 deals with injustice and oppression. What are some examples of injustice and oppression that you’re aware of in our current culture?
In what ways do you contribute, intentionally or not, to the injustice and/or oppression in our culture?
For the two principles presented (prophecy is more important for what it reveals about God than what it reveals about the future, and prophecy wasn’t necessarily written to us, but it was definitely preserved for us), what do Amos’s words reveal about God and why were these words preserved for us?
What are you doing to right the wrongs of injustice and oppression in our world?
Prayer: Pray that you reject partaking in injustice and oppression, and that the only guidance you follow for right and wrong is God’s direction.
