New action - new outcome

Hosea 1 New International Version (NIV)

When the Lord began to speak through Hosea, the Lord said to him, “Go, marry a promiscuous woman and have children with her, for like an adulterous wife this land is guilty of unfaithfulness to the Lord.”
 So he married Gomer daughter of Diblaim, and she conceived and bore him a son.

Hose was a prophet of the Living God.  God told Hosea go and find a promiscuous woman and have children with her.  It seems that today’s children are very promiscuous and we don’t seem to worry too much about it.  We tell them use protection and don’t get into trouble but we don’t teach them to abstain and keep themselves pure for the marriage bed.

I wonder if Gomer the daughter of Diblaim was taught to be a promiscuous woman or if she was so beautiful that she just couldn’t help herself and was drawn to men sexually.  She just couldn’t help herself?  

We should rein in our children in, teach them the right way and the outcome will be so much better.  Don’t leave them going about their own business, they are too young to decided what’s right from wrong, we must teach our children.  While they are young and when they grow old they will know right from wrong.

It is for everyone the Lord our God calls to himself.” 40 Peter warned them with many other words. He begged them, “Save yourselves from the evil of today’s people!”
I say we are too caught up in our own little worlds, we believe that we are capable of so much and that when times are difficult then we call on the Lord Jesus.  When nothing happens and we do not receive answered prayers we lose hope and start looking for new ways to get out of the mess we find ourselves in.
In the International Children’s Bible we read that “change your hearts and lives and be baptized,”  the words that stood out for me is “change your hearts and lives.”  I have been thinking about these words.  Something m…
