Hosea 11:1-11

Today’s Reading is Hosea 11:1-11.
Hosea is not shy in any way. Today he revolutionizes gender perceptions of God portraying YHWH as a concerned father and a protective lion mother. Male God, female Goddess? In yesterday’s reading Hosea wrote about God being a betrayed husband and in 13:8 God is a mother bear – an animal!
What does your God look like?
