Be sure to work on the week’s memory verse and make time for the spiritual discipline.
Read Hosea 1:2-9
What comes to mind when you consider Hosea’s call to marry a promiscuous woman and have children with her? What kind of love is this?
Read Hosea 3:1-3
At some point Gomer left Hosea and went back to her former ways. Hosea’s extravagant love for her did not change her. Yet God calls him to go get her back. And he purchased her from another man.
How is this a picture of God’s love for us? What in your life draws you away from God’s love?
He is not willing to let you go, and He paid everything to bring you back. Give thanks today for God’s extravagant love.
