These daily online studies are adapted from our Quiet Time Bible Guide. The studies go through the Old and New Testaments in just over two years. The approach taken by our quiet time Bible studies does not include answers. The goal of the study is to help you dig into Scripture for yourself. You can go deeper using a commentary, Bible background guide or Bible handbook.
Do you like it when your refrigerator and cupboard are full? Isn’t it great to have your debts paid and money in the bank? These are the times we thank and praise God. The Israelites were prosperous in the first part of Hosea’s ministry, but here Hosea tells the Israelites not to rejoice. Their fertility (having babies, growing crops, increasing livestock) was coming to an end. It was not that they had not planted, but that they planted the wrong things. What we sow, we will reap.
What are you planting in your life and in the lives of others? Consider whether you are letting God guide what you sow.
Ask God to help you to be a more faithful worker in the fields of your life, the church and the world.
