Memory Verse
HOSEA 3:1
“And Jehovah said unto
me, Go again, love a
woman beloved of her
friend, and an adulteress,
even as Jehovah loveth the
children of Israel, though
they turn unto other gods,
and love cakes of raisins.”

do? Hosea 1:1, 2

was exactly like God’s choice
of Israel and of us
Mercy and Compassion

to Christ’s Words? Matthew 5:32
