Hosea 4:1 to Hosea 5:15
Like a prosecuting attorney, God presented his case against Israel. Then God took the part of a jury to announce the verdict. Israel was guilty.
The purpose of the book of Hosea was to show that faithfulness to God brings his love and compassion. Living in an unfaithful way brings his punishment.
Today, pray for a few friends who need to be encouraged to remain faithful to God. Ask God to use you in that role.
