Today’s Reading is Hosea 14:1-9.
Hosea once again uses strong imagery to get his message across. Today’s passage is full of botanical references.
Verse 6a: “They will be alive with new growth, and beautiful like olive trees.”
Verse 6b: “They will be fragrant like the cedars of Lebanon. “
Verse 7b: “They will grow crops of grain and be fruitful like a vineyard.
They will be as famous as the wine of Lebanon.”
