It's Day 54 and we're in Exodus 32.We finished at Exodus 20 a while back with the Ten Commandments. Now we finish up the story with the pathetic actions of Israel in response.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 6 - It's amazing how quickly they got off track. Why did that happen so quickly? Two things are key: 1. Israel, as seen by their whining in previous chapters, didn't have their hearts into following God, so they were eager to turn aside; 2. Aaron was not a mature leader (see verses 22-24).
- Verses 27-29 - This seems harsh, but apparently that severe a response was necessary to wake the people up to how bad what they were doing was.
