God gave Moses the ten commandments on Mount Sinai, but when he came off the mountain he was in for a big surprise!
Last time, we learned about the 10 Commandments and how God gave Moses some rules to bring back to the people so they would know how to treat God and other people. Well, while Moses was up on the mountain with God, the people grew restless. They decided that God was ignoring them and so they created their own god. They took metal and jewelry and melted it all together and created a cow to worship. Now, this sounds silly to us, right? After all God had done for them, like rescuing them from slavery and having food fall from the sky to feed them, they decided a cow was better than God. When Moses returned, he couldn’t believe what was happening. He was angry. Here’s the lesson. No thing or person should ever take the place of God. He should always be first. He loves us. He provides for us. He is the only one worthy of our praise and worship.
