Hosea 6:4-7

Hos 6:4 What am I going to do with you, Ephraim? What am I going to do with you, Judah? Your covenant loyalty is like a morning cloud, like the dew that disappears early.
Hos 6:5 for this reason I have cut them down by the prophets; I have killed them by the words of my mouth, and my judgment goes forth like the light.
Hos 6:6 Because I desire covenant loyalty and not sacrifice, the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.
Hos 6:7 But like Adam they transgressed the covenant; there they betrayed me.

disappearing dew

The LORD complains that his people’s covenant loyalty has disappeared like the morning dew. It was gone before he even had a chance to appreciate it. He feels betrayed. Oh Christian, do not let your loyalty to God be a mere historical marker. Stay with him!

LORD, we want to refresh you with our commitment all our lives.
