Roles Ignoring God's Guidance
Of Leadership, All
Roles Ignoring Sound a warning! Israel, you broke our agreement and ignored my teaching. Now an eagle is swooping down to attack my land. Israel, you say, We claim you, the Lord, as our God.
But your enemies will chase you for rejecting our good agreement. You chose kings and leaders without consulting me; you made silver and gold idols that led to your down fall.
City of Samaria, Im angry because of your idol in the shape of a calf. When will you ever be innocent again? Someone from Israel built that idol for you, but only I am God. And so it will be smashed to pieces. If you scatter wind in stead of wheat, you will harvest a whirlwind and have no wheat.
Even if you harvest grain,
enemies will steal
it all. Israel, you are ruined, and now the nations consider you worthless. You are like a wild donkey that goes its own way. Youve run off to Assyria and hired them as allies. You can bargain with nations, but Ill catch you anyway. Soon you will suffer abuse by kings and rulers. -10 Hosea 8:1-10
