woe to them at ease

Amos 6

v1

Woe to them [that are] at ease in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria, [which are] named chief of the nations, to whom the house of Israel came!

I usually think about how we're supposed to rejoice, but this chapter talks about the time to be serious.

v6

That drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the chief ointments: but they are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph.
They thought everything was OK for them, even though they were sinning.

v13

Ye which rejoice in a thing of nought, which say, Have we not taken to us horns by our own strength?
We know that we should examine ourselves for sin once a week when we're getting ready to take part in the Lord's remembrance. We should also examine ourselves for sin more often than that. Also, we should be serious about praying for other people.
