{Day 21} “I Was No Prophet”

“Then Amos answered and said to Amaziah, ‘I was no prophet, nor a prophet’s son, but I was a herdsman and a dresser of sycamore figs. But the Lord took me from following the flock, and the Lord said to me, ‘Go, prophesy to my people Israel.’ Now therefore hear the word of the Lord.'”

– Amos 7:14-16 (ESV)

Amos received a call from the Lord to be a prophet.

But not because he was looking for a call.

Amos was working in the field.

Serving the Lord in the small.

Honoring the Lord in the ordinary.

Seeking the Lord in the everyday.
