Seek the LORD until He comes.

“Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap the fruit of unfailing love and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the LORD until He comes and showers righteousness on you.” 
~ Hosea 10:12

Living in an agricultural society, the imagery of this passage stands out in new ways. Listen to all the agricultural words used. Sow. Reap. Fruit. Unplowed. Ground. Showers.

The message is clear. Sow righteousness. Reap unfailing love. Break up unplowed ground. Wait for the showers of righteousness from heaven. It is time to seek the LORD until He comes.

Come let us seek the LORD. Ready your soil. Sow in righteousness. Reap unfailing love.
