Meet Amos. He’s a rancher, raising sheep and probably cattle, along with being a farmer of figs. He was a businessman from a small, country town in northeastern Judah, who more than likely traveled a lot to the northern kingdom of Israel for business. Amos knew the territory. He was also a godly man. Even with no formal training like Elisha or even Jonah, God chose him to be his spokesperson to not just Israel, but the pagan, Gentile nations too.
