04 Jul Hosea 3:1-3

Then the Lord said to me, “Go again, love a woman who is loved by her husband, yet an adulteress, even as the Lord loves the sons of Israel, though they turn to other gods and love raisin cakes.” So I bought her for myself for fifteen shekels of silver and a homer and a half of barley. Then I said to her, “You shall stay with me for many days. You shall not play the harlot, nor shall you have a man; so I will also be toward you.”

God tells Hosea to show Gomer unconditional love. How can she take this kind of love for granted? Messing with God’s grace will not change Him, but it will change us. Some today call acceptable what God condemns as sin. These are people who do not cherish being His. If you have drifted from the love you once had, don’t let it die. Cherish the ones who have an unbroken love for you.
