DO YOU HAVE A PLUMB LINE?

 

Ephesians 1:3-14
Amos 7:7-15

Conclusion

If you try to build a house by what looks even and what certainly seems to be square, you will fail every time. It will always be uneven, out of kilter, and crooked. Our vision simply isn’t that good. We need a better standard, a true measure to go by.

When we try to live by what seems to be working or what is successful for us, we can end up with the standards of Bernie Madoff or Wall Street manipulators. The ethics that God gives us demand fairness, equality, justice and compassion.

Amos’ call is to remember the plumb line God has set and to build by it: square, even, strong, and true.

Amen
