In this section of Hosea you can sense the true love and disappointment of God in his people. He truly wanted to bless them and life them up but they have chosen to go another way. They have chosen to worship sticks rather then the God who made the sticks. How often do we sink into the trap of worshiping the things of this world rather then worshiping the one who has made us and everything we see? If we lose sight of truly knowing God at his invitation, then we have missed out on the greatest life we could have had. God says to them that he wanted to bless them and now wants to restore them, but the nation must stop prostituting itself with other gods.
