Day 39

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.


Day 40 reading – Exodus Chapters 30-32


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
