Hosea 4-6 (The Daily Walk Bible).
It’s great to have some shorter reading days!
The devotional suggests looking for how the nation broke the 10 commandments according to Hosea. Here is the list:
There are some great nuggets here that we can challenge ourselves with, made especially jarring by the NLT translation.
Hosea 4:1-2 “There is no faithfulness, no kindness, no knowledge of God in your land. You curse and lie and kill and steal and commit adultery.”
Hosea 4:4 “Don’t point your finger at someone else and try to pass the blame!”
Hosea 4:6 “My people are being destroyed because they don’t know me.”
Hosea 4:11 “Alcohol and prostitution have robbed my people of their brains.”
Hosea 5:3 “You have left me as a prostitute leaves her husband.”
Hosea 5:5 “The arrogance of Israel testifies against here; she will stumble under her load of guilt.”
Let’s make sure that we aren’t stumbling under a load of guilt!
