"When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called them, so they went from them; they sacrificed to the Baals, and burned incense to carved images. I taught Ephraim to walk taking them by their arms; but they did not know that I healed them. I drew them with gentle cords, with bands of love; and I was to them as those who take the yoke from their neck. I stooped and fed them." 1-4
I pray that I can do the same for my children.
