Hosea New American Standard Bible (NASB) 12 Sow with a view to righteousness, Reap in accordance with [a]kindness; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the Lord Until He comes to [b]rain righteousness on you.
He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
Prayer: Lord, please give me the desire to keep Your instructions to close to my heart and mind so that I may remain close to You. I long for my joy to be complete and know that it is only possible by staying close to You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
