Read Exodus 32

Scripture- Exodus 32:7-8a- The Lord told Moses, “Quick! Go down the mountain! Your people whom you brought from the land of Egypt have corrupted themselves. How quickly they have turned away from the way I commanded them to live!"
Observations- Moses, while still on the Mt. Sinai with God getting the Commandments from God, must have been shocked beyond belief that already the people had turned to worship false gods. He hadn't even gotten down from the mountain before they were doing their own thing and going their own way.
Application- We are always only one step from stupid. It's a fact. We have to cultivate a close relationship with the living God. It's just too easy to coast and drift into habits that dishonor our life giving relationship with Jesus Christ. How will you be intentional about loving God and loving people today?
Prayer- Lord, thank You for Your faithfulness through the generations. Thank You for leading and guiding us in spite of how often we stray from Your best will for our lives. Help me not be stupid, but let me continually seek Your love. Amen.
"For the commandments say, “'You must not commit adultery. You must not murder. You must not steal. You must not covet.' These—and other such commandments—are summed up in this one commandment: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'” (Romans 13:9),
