From Pastor Todd's weekly email,
Finally, the Hosea passage gives us a glimpse of a conversation God has with himself. You may take this as odd, but if you have been a parent or responsible for younger siblings at any point in your life then you know why you may be found talking to yourself. Despite your best attempts to tend and care for those children it seems they are always looking for a way out from under that influence. Even more they tend to walk away from rather than be drawn by our cords of love. What is a parent to do? What is a God to do? Show mercy. Gather the people together again. In our lives may we exhibit that same trait. Ready to show mercy when the impulse is anger and wrath. If God who is often right to be angry over our dismissal of his love shows mercy, how important would it be for people who claim his name and live in a relationship of love with him to follow that example?
