As a loving parent, God is reflecting in Hosea 11. He is remembering what it was like to love them only to see them fall to a non-existent god, Baals. Using the imagination of a parent, he is recalling those days of teaching his people, guiding them, blessing them, and loving them and having them turn away. We see God not able to just leave his children, we see God’s grace poured out for us- not God’s wrath.
