Hosea 4:1-5:15


Again, today’s Old Testament reading hits me right between the eyes. I am reminded of the text that states: For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
(1 Peter 4:17 KJV)

To often I find myself focusing on the “other,” the sinner as causing me “trouble;” however, it is with the believer, the Christian, just like the pattern we see with God’s dealings with Israel and Judah, it will be the “other” that God will deal with, that is why we are to be light in a dead and dying world, but it starts with us first.

"And why worry about a speck in your friend's eye when you have a log in your own? How can you think of saying to your friend, 'Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,' when you can't see past the log in your own eye? Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend's eye. (Matthew 7:3-5 NLT)

Grace and peace,
Ramona
