Hosea is one of several prophets in the Old Testament who warned God’s people of exile. We might think that messages about Israel’s exile don’t pertain to us thousands of years later. In the literal sense, they might not.

But you and I still face exile as a human condition in that we return to situations from which we may want to—or need to—escape. 

Hosea 11 is a message of hope for the future, a clear reminder of where God has brought us from and his care for us. 

May you be encouraged today by this reading.

P.S. If you want to dig a bit deeper into the theme of exile in the Bible, you’ll want to watch this video by the Bible Project guys.
