Experience God 57: Hosea 11:1-4 (God’s Love for Israel)

Suzanne Lederer leads us in connecting with God through Lectio Divina.

Hosea 11 (NIV)

God’s Love for Israel

11 “When Israel was a child, I loved him,
and out of Egypt I called my son.
But the more they were called,
the more they went away from me.
They sacrificed to the Baals
and they burned incense to images.
It was I who taught Ephraim to walk,
taking them by the arms;
but they did not realize
it was I who healed them.
I led them with cords of human kindness,
with ties of love.
To them I was like one who lifts
a little child to the cheek,
and I bent down to feed them.
