October 8 – Warning to the Complacent – Amos 6

We read of a country falling apart due to the attitude toward the government and God.  The people became complacent and satisfied with what surrounded them.  They put their faith and trust in wealth they enjoyed and the safety the government provided.  They no longer valued God.  They became a self-absorbed nation.  As long as the individual got what they wanted, they were satisfied (verse 6).  All true and genuine correction of any form of social justice today, will begin with and focused on God.  All attempts at social justice reform not founded on the God of the Bible will not only fail, it will make conditions worse.
