The Herdsman from Tekoa - June 7


He's made it on few (if any) lists of heroes: Amos. He lived in broken times, and what he saw he couldn't remain silent about.

His superpower: He was an advocate.


1. Amos saw a broken world and refused to hold his tongue. What things are broken in our world today that God's people should not, cannot, remain silent about?

2. The people of Israel took their freedom, prosperity, and position for granted. They fell into a trap of believing they had earned or deserved everything they had. Why did God rebuke them through Amos, and what can we learn from it?

3. What have you become numb to that breaks the heart of God? What made you numb to those things?

4. Who or what should you begin advocating for to advance the Kingdom and mission of God? How can you do that?

5. Throughout the Old Testament God chose the side of the poor, the widow, the orphan, foreigner, the outsider. Jesus highlighted this part of God's character clearly. Why do we struggle to do the same?
