Family life brings tremendous joy and terrible pain. As dysfunctional as family relationships may be, family members are difficult to disown. God knows something of family problems in his relationship with Israel. Hosea knows something of family problems with his wife and children. We know something of family problems, too. Fortunately, bitter family problems get better with God... someday.

God asks Hosea to take a harlot bride. Then she has bastard children. It's not a great life for Hosea, but it is a sympathetic one. First hand, he experiences the painful, tainted-love marriage God had with Israel. And he serves as an historical example of how we are called to love the least deserving.

Worry comes naturally. Whether we are considering our health, finances, family relations, academic performance, or upcoming plans, it is easy to have an unhealthy fear. Jesus diagnoses our worries, but assures us they are unreasonable, unbelieving, unbecoming, and unnecessary. Trust is God - who feeds the birds and clothes the grass - is a better posture.

Love is the highest, greatest, most comprehensive virtue. All the other "one another" commands flourish under the umbrella of love. Without love, we live out of mere duty or formality. To give love, we must first receive love from it's Divine source. This sermon invites us to receive God's love so we can give it to others.

If you're under 65 years old, the word "submit" makes you cringe. You are self-sufficient. You make your own rules. You follow the beat of your own drum. Thus the biblical call to "mutual submission" startles you. Take the test: Seven Signs that Submission Is Not Your Strong Suit." You'll see. And once you admit you try to hard to control others, you might consider letting the Spirit take greater control in your #LifeTogether.

Forgiveness has become a fad in psychological and medical literature. But definitions of forgiveness remain fuzzy and too focused on self. The biblical exhortation to forgive follows the pattern set by Jesus. It is a gift of pardon to a repentant person who has morally offended another.
