To Hearing the Word of God

To Hearing the Word of GodMany think of God’s withdrawal of protection in terms of famine of food and water, but the prophet Amos warns of another, “Behold, the days are coming,  ‘says the Lord God, ‘when I will send a famine on the land: not a famine of bread, nor of water, but of hearing of the word of the Lord.’”  (Amos 8:11)

When food and water are scarce, what little there is: is to be savored and husbanded.  And, when the world is experiencing a famine of hearing the word of the Lord and the call to follow his son Christ Jesus, those who hear the Lord should savor his word and call, husband them in their hearts, and bring them to a starving world.
