Amos 2:6-10, 13-16; Psalm 50; Matthew 8:18-22

Jesus invites us to "follow me"

Today we listen to the words of Amos who described himself to be merely a herdsman and a grower of sycamore figs. However God called him to be his prophet. Amos deplored the moral and social decline of the Israelite people which he considered had resulted from their turning away from God to worship idols. When we are tempted to make idols out of the good things of our lives, let us listen attentively to the call of Jesus in Matthew's gospel to "follow me.”
