Make the Change


How are you being called to become compassion?

Amos 7:14-15

Amos answered Amaziah, “I was no prophet, nor have I belonged to a company of prophets; I was a shepherd and a dresser of sycamores. The Lord took me from following the flock, and said to me, Go, prophesy to my people Israel.”


God is calling each of us. No one is exempt. No one is left out.

We are all called in some way to use our gifts and talents to build the kingdom of God…or in other words…to make the world a more loving, merciful, forgiving, compassionate and just place.

The sooner you “tap into” your inner source…God’s voice within you…the sooner you will be in the flow of God’s creativity…and the sooner you will be your “true self.”

Many people need to become something else first…something that is usually the creation of their egos. This could be called the “false self.” It’s not a “bad” self…just not the “true self”.

Jesus calls each of us to “repent” which actually means to change the direction in which we are seeking happiness.

Most people resist change.

Little do they know that the change is the key to their happiness!

The change may be small or big…as it was for Amos in today’s scripture. Such was the case for me: from radio news…to ministry.

You may find yourself on a road less traveled. Nothing is more insecure…but at the same time totally exciting and invigorating as being on that road where you will not only discover God…but yourself in the process.
