Our Nation And Israel --- Similar Attitudes Toward Sin

In Amos 2, we see the depths to which Israel plunged headlong, in its callous attitude towards sin:

They sell the righteous for silver, and the poor for a pair of sandals” (Amos 2:6).

They were so obsessed with silver and shoes that they would do whatever it took to possess them. They had a winter house and a summer house. Their “houses of ivory” were more important to them than human life (Amos 3:15). They longed for the end of the Sabbath so they could accumulate more wealth (Amos 8:5-6).
