Lectio on Amos 1:2
I do not wish to seem too lofty or to claim a position that is not mine to claim. With that caveat for coverage: I believe God is calling me to be one who speaks forth his Word and exposes the truth of things. I believe this, but I am also afraid, for it does indeed seem lofty. But then, if God has called I must remind myself what must be done.
If I am among the nevi'im, then I am among the nevi'im.
God, develop in me the courage to speak boldly the things you would have me speak. And grant me the wisdom to speak the truth in ways that others can hear.
