The Light and Fire of the Holy Spirit is to penetrate deep within our beings. In the passage I read, Hosea said the leaders made choices for rewards, the priests simply did a job and the prophets were after profit. So let's dig into our own hearts.
God's Word is meant to change us...to illumine where we are wasting our time. God wants a full and abundant life for everyone of us. He is not angry when we are mistaken or falling short; He's simply saying, 'Come here. This is better.' God isn't an accusatory God. He judges sin because He loves us! Embrace His Word and Be transformed.
Oh, one final piece...the arrow that always reveals my deceptions? Judging someone else. When I see something in someone else that I think is 'less than God desires'....it is only because that very thing is in me.
