I’m seeing a common theme in the Minor Prophets: seek God with all our heart. Hosea 10:12 instructs us to seek the Lord until he showers righteousness on us. We tend to substitute fake self-righteousness for the righteousness of God. Joel 2:15 commands us to rend our hearts and not our garments. It is so much easier on us to rend our garments! Amos 5:5 tells us to seek the Lord and live; don’t seek Bethel or Gilgal because they will perish. We may comfort ourselves with our church and our traditions instead of satisfying ourselves in Jesus.
