Day 39 reading – Exodus Chapters 28-29
So I told them, ‘Whoever has any gold jewelry, take it off.’ Then they gave me the gold, and I threw it into the fire, and out came this calf!” Exodus 32:24 NIV
We read this story and we immediately see the foolishness of Aaron.
This has to go down as one of the all time worst excuses ever given.
As if Moses is going to believe the story Aaron is telling.
And yet, how silly we must sound as we bargain with God, as we make excuses for our behavior, as we rationalize our actions to God.
Who are the foolish ones now?
Bonus … check out this unique view of the story in song. But beware you might discover your own folly on display.
