In this message we come to the final chapter in the book of Hosea and are confronted with the reality that there is only one way to live wisely. Israel did not live wisely. They persisted in their rejection of God despite his passionate longing for them to return to him in repentance so that he might pour out on them his generous mercy and abundant love. What about you? All who humble themselves before God in repentance and seek to walk in his ways are promised true life, a life of flourishing and fruitfulness. When we see the choice before us, it is easy to see that there is only one wise way to live.
