My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

Hosea 11

I love you really...

Israel was my loved child. I, God, taught her to walk and took away their burdens. By the closer I got to her the more she ran. They are determined to leave, but I don't want to give them up. I won't destroy them completely, and they'll come back.

Key verse:
9. I will not carry out my fierce anger,
nor will I turn and devastate Ephraim.
For I am God, and not man

My thoughts:
And in the midst of all the proclaimed punishment, some grace. Is God's bark perhaps worse than his bite?
