Daily Devotional
November 20
As they called them, so they went from them: they sacrificed unto Baalim, and burned incense to graven images. I taught Ephraim also to go, taking them by their arms; but they knew not that I healed them.
Hosea 11:2-3
“I called My people,” the Lord declares. “I carried them in My arms. I taught them how to walk. But they didn’t acknowledge Me. They served Baal instead.”

If you asked God’s people in Hosea’s day if they loved God, they would say, “Absolutely! We celebrate all of the feasts and go to the Temple religiously.” And if you asked them about the little idol on their mantels, they would probably say it was just something to inspire them. They were going through the motions of loving God, but their hearts were divided.
