Israel lost its privileged position with God primarily due to idol worship. But it was not the only reason. Hosea, in verse 4:1, writes that God saw three areas where the people had gone wrong.

  • no faithfulness in God
  • no kindness
  • no knowledge of God

We can apply these to the Christian lifestyle. Without faith we do not trust God with our lives. Without kindness it is impossible to love one another. Without knowledge we have no idea how to worship God. Are all three a part of your life?
