Advent Reflection: Hosea 11:1-4 “”When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son. 2 But the more I called Israel, the further they went from me. They sacrificed to the Baals and they burned incense to images.
3 It was I who taught Ephraim to walk, taking them by the arms; but they did not realize it was I who healed them.
4 I led them with cords of human kindness, with ties of love; I lifted the yoke from their neck and bent down to feed them.”
Faithful. Steadfast. Loving. This is the character of God with a people who were continually unfaithful, impatient, and unloving. This is the same God who loves us a good, good Father. A God who heals our brokenness. Who lifts the heavy yoke from our necks and bends down to nurture us. Let us rest tonight in the arms of our good, good Father.
