Destroyed for lack of knowledge — Hoses 4-6

I wrote this at the bedside of a member of our congregation who’s in hospice. Today’s reading one which is typical of Hosea about knowing God. His people were destroyed for lack of knowing Him. As I sit here with dying disciple of Jesus, I’m impressed with the peace, confidence, and comfort even in such extremis in life. Pity those without this Savior of hope, without the knowledge of true relationship.

See you torrow, Lord wiling.
