Take your pick.
Amos emphasis was upon the moral character of Jehovah, the righteous ruler of all nations and men. Amos shows that the offering the Lord most cares for is a righteous life—the sacrifices of animals lose their meaning if offered as substitutes for personal righteousness (5:21–27). The fact that Israel is the covenant people would make their punishment the heavier (3:2; 9:7). Yet Israel will not be utterly destroyed (9:8), and in the last days the kingdom will return to and even surpass its ancient glory (9:11–15). Amos emphasizes that the Lord speaks through his prophets in warning mankind (3:7).
Hosea’s fundamental idea is the love of God for his people. In love God redeemed them from Egypt (11:1); their history has been but an illustration of his love (11–13); all his chastisements are inflicted in love (2:14; 3); and their restoration shall be due to his love (2:19; 14:4). In contrast with this moral Being, who is Love, Hosea sets Israel, characterized always by want of affection, by treachery and infidelity. Yet he is able to look forward to a final redemption (2:19; 11:12–14:9). The profound thought and pathos of this prophet of the north deeply influenced succeeding writers (see Isa. 40–66; Jer. 2; 3; Ezek. 16; 33).

i imagine except this scripture exhibiting that we ought to continuously pray from our heart and not in any respect make repetitive prayers,which finally end up meaningless, Jesus became also education yet another remarkable concept: The Pharisees ought to wish out loud attempting to make it common how "righteous" they were yet how all of us else became no sturdy. that type of wondering became classic of the Pharisees. they could placed themselves up above all of us else, particularly of being humble. The very unloving way they dealt with others became something to this point far removed from the way God is, yet they said themselves righteous. in spite of the indisputable fact that, as Jesus made common, they were considered wicked. So convinced, they'd are growing interest and some would have even instructed them how large they are and they need they were as righteous as them. in spite of the indisputable fact that it really is their purely reward because now they are gone and those Pharisees who did not change would not in any respect be resurrected. So their "reward in finished" became that short era of time that they were alive. they'd some prominence and that became their reward. it really is it. Now they don't even exist. in spite of the indisputable fact that the classic ones who extremely were God's servants, those who prayed from their heart, who did not praise themselves, they'd have a large reward at the same time as they were/are resurrected. (Resurrected to both existence in heaven or existence contained in the destiny in the international.)
