Hosea 1-2 B

“When she runs after her lovers, she won’t be able to catch them. She will search for them but not find them. Then she will think ‘I might as well return to my husband, for I was better off with him than I am now.’ ” 2:7

I felt sad reading this, and then guilty. I’ve had similar thought patterns in my relationship with the Lord.

Is God an afterthought for you? Something you circle back around to when your vices fail you?

I appreciate the way the book of Hosea humanizes God’s relationship with Israel. It reminds us that he loves us relationally and wants us to choose him.

Do you choose God or just resort back to him when everything else fails you?
