Exodus 32 (ESV)

When the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the mountain, the people gathered themselves together to Aaron and said to him, “Up, make us gods who shall go before us. As for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.” 2 So Aaron said to them, “Take off the rings of gold that are in the ears of your wives, your sons, and your daughters, and bring them to me.” 3 So all the people took off the rings of gold that were in their ears and brought them to Aaron. 4 And he received the gold from their hand and fashioned it with a graving tool and made a golden calf.

  2. What a sad chapter. It is easy to point fingers though and more difficult to look at our own idols and the excuses I come up with to follow them. “Seriously I threw the stuff in the fire and this calf came out” Not sure if anyone bought that, but in what ways do we justify sin and independence from God.

    And I bet that powdered idol was pretty hard going down. How often do we learn only by having to taste the destructive nature of sin and the consequences that come. May we all be zealous for the cause and glory of God, like the Levites, but not by carrying physical swords and waging physical battle, but with the Sword of the Spirit and fighting the battle for the souls of men.
