Summarize what you read in one paragraph: The Lord laments at Israel for their inability to focus on what is right. The one true God. They forgot who God was/is.
What is one key verse?
Hosea 13: 4
“But I have been the Lord your God
ever since you came out of Egypt.
You shall acknowledge no God but me,
no Savior except me.”
How does what you read change your vision of God? It reminds me that there is only one God. There is no room for any other.
How does what you read change your vision of yourself or others? It reminds me that sometimes our idols can be our own ego.
How will you Go With God because of this reading? (What is an action step?) I will take more time to remember where I came from and who got me this far in life. Who’s responsible for my very existence and each breath that I take.
Where did you see Jesus in these chapters? (What made you think about Jesus?) Hosea 14: 8- ” O Ephraim, what have I to do with Idols? It is I who answer and look after you. I am like an evergreen cypress; from me comes your fruit.
In this verse I think of the idea of good fruit and the parable Jesus spoke about in regards to bearing good fruit. Also Jesus is the vine in (or tree) in which we grow from.
