Sometimes God might ask you to do something that doesn't look right to other people.
Sometimes the things God tells us to do will be met with disapproval by families, friends, our community.
Sometimes the things God calls us to do might even be judged wrongly by others, misunderstood by others.
I wonder what Hosea's family, his parents, grandparents, neighbors thought of him marrying a prostitute. What went through Hosea's mind when God told him to do this?
He must have felt conflicted I think. I bet his mother cried. I bet those who felt they were wiser counseled him not to do this....
But when we know that we know that we know God has told us to do something even though those around us may not understand, always choose to obey God. He'll deal with the fallout and the consequences.
