For Want Of love

Hosea 6:4-6 (NIV)

4“What can I do with you, Ephraim?

What can I do with you, Judah?

Your love is like the morning mist,

like the early dew that disappears.

5Therefore I cut you in pieces with my prophets,

I killed you with the words of my mouth;

my judgments flashed like lightning upon you.

6For I desire mercy, not sacrifice,

and acknowledgment of God rather than burnt offerings.
