Hosea 6:6 For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.
God, through Hosea, tells His people that He is not looking for external worship. He wants them to love others, show mercy. He want them to know Him more than He wants them to bring offerings.
We focus so much on the wrong things. We are about the ritual, the service when God is about our hearts. We focus on what is on the outside wild He focuses on what is on the inside.
I want to love Him more. I want to show His love to others. I want to know Him better and share what I know. I hope these things become your prayer today as you read this short devotional!
