Predictably, Israel cries out, "My God! We know you!’ – But they don’t act like it. Hosea 8:2 (TM)
Jesus told us "you’ll know them by their fruit." We can’t judge people, God is very clear about that. The judgment seat is too big for any save Him. But, we are told to be fruit inspectors. Nevertheless, verses like this one in Hosea always make me turn inward. Instead of wondering about the fruit of others I ask myself, "Do others see love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, and self-control in me?"
