COW GIRLS. . . . . Amos 4:1 Israel’s wealthy women were compared to the cows of Bashan—pampered, sleek, and well fed (see Psalm 22:12). These women selfishly pushed their husbands to oppress the helpless in order to supply their lavish lifestyle. Be careful not to desire material possessions so much that you are willing to oppress others and displease God to get them.
