In Moses’ absence Aaron fashioned a golden calf for the Israelites to worship. He told them that this would be the god that they would serve.
The thought is mind boggling. People were actually praying to this statue. It couldn’t see. It couldn’t hear. It wasn’t living! How ridiculous it seems.
None of this is living either. Still yet some people choose to serve it. They become obsessed with it. Dedicating their lives to it.
To some people this type of material has become their idol.
But be glad because you have chosen a God that is alive. The God that lives and reigns forever more. He hears our prayers. He looks upon us as though we are the apple of his eye. He speaks to us. He is alive and well. He has always been and always will be. He is the great I Am.
Serving lifeless idols will get you nowhere. Serving the One True God will afford you life most abundant with an eternity spent with Him.
