Read: Hosea 1-7
Marked: Hosea 1:2, When the LORD began to speak by Hosea, the LORD said to Hosea: “Go, take yourself a wife of harlotry And children of harlotry, For the land has committed great harlotry by departing from the LORD.”
Departing from God is akin to harlotry which is prostituting yourself. The picture this presents is sufficient.
If I don’t understand something God wants me to know, my response shouldn’t be to do my own thing, but to continue listening to God by searching the scriptures for an answer.
In this day of turmoil people resort to actions that give little thought to what the Lord would have them do. We should ask, “What can I learn from this, and how should I respond?“
