Bible Text: Luke 10:25-37, Amos 7:1-9 | Rev. David A. Douthett
The world sure seems like a mess these days! Nothing seems to be quite right. The scriptures tell us that God's ways are always right and true, though. So if it isn't God that's the problem, who is next on the list of suspects? This isn't a new story. It's what the prophet Amos declared to Israel in the 8th century BC. We can hear it in what Jesus told the lawyer with a parable about a man who fell among thieves and the people who did and didn't help him. And yes, it's our story, too. So what are we to do when things are out of plumb?
