verse 41: That was the time they made an idol in the form of a calf. They brought sacrifices to it and held a celebration in honor of what their hands had made.
It seems so blatantly wrong, almost impossibly foolish to imagine followers of God being so fickle. But do I lose track of what and whom I worship? I certainly wouldn’t think of praying to anyone other than our God, who is our very creator. But, there are times I allow my choices and my actions to be swayed by another power- a power at that moment being given more of my heart than I should give. I may make a choice to be lazy or to overeat or to gossip or to keep something for myself I should give to another. These small choices are made with my back to God. If I am more often turned to Him, I will more often make the right choices.
Holy Lord, thank you for your Word. You have given me all I need, and more. Help me to walk the path you have chosen for me, making Godly decisions every step of the way. Amen
