Hosea Chapter 8 (Old Testament, King James Bible)
Hosea Chapter 8 (Old Testament)
Hosea 8: What we reap is a reflection of what we sow.
Memory verse: Hosea 8:7 “They sow the wind, And reap the whirlwind. The stalk has no bud; It shall never produce meal. If it should produce, Aliens would swallow it up.
- We must be very conscious of what we sow as we journey through because whatever we sow would later come in return as a gain – good or bad.
- From the previous chapters, we can see how Israelites were said to be spiritual adulterers with the manner of way they chase after other gods – what God detests.
Their chasing after other gods is what they have invested all their time and resource in, literally, that’s what they sow – they sow a bad thing – instead of seeking the face of God and living to please Him. What the Israelites sowed was sinful and as such there’s a tantamount judgment that follows such a sinful act.
We must ensure that what we sow per time is God's will because when we sow things that are not in tandem with God's will, intense and unbearable consequences would be what follow our decision [Gal 8:7-8].
