GUESS WHO? . . . . . Hosea 8:12 It is easy to listen to a sermon and think of all the people we know who should be listening, or to read the Bible and think of those who should do what the passage teaches. The Israelites did this constantly, applying God’s laws to others but not to themselves. This is just another way to deflect God’s Word and avoid making needed changes. As you think of others who need to apply what you are hearing or reading, check to see if the same application could fit you. And keep in mind that often our own faults are the very ones we see in others.
