Love at the pointy end of betrayal

If you've ever found yourself on the pointy end of betrayal, I bet you'd tell a story of someone you loved. Or love still. So it is with God and God's people - at the time of the prophet Hosea and now. How can we ever come back from the ways in which we have betrayed our beloveds (especially our children and their futures), God's beloveds (everyone and all creation), especially when we are motivated by the best of intentions? Can we trust that God's most decisive motive toward us is impenetrable love? [Photo by Rene Bernal on Unsplash]
