At Horeb they fashioned a calf, worshiped a metal statue. They exchanged their glorious God for the image of a grass-eating bull.
When we hear what God’s people did after God had faithfully freed them from oppression through the leadership of Moses…we shake our heads. How could they actually worship a statue of a bull? And yet, what takes center-stage in our lives? Instead of a statue of a bull…is it our various media devices? Is it our computers and the internet? Is it money, alcohol, sex, etc.? Is it sports? Is our “church” a metal structure called a stadium and do we glorify and worship the team on the field? Jesus, you turned away from all the false gods…and gave yourself totally to the One God. Help me…to do the same!
