How could the children of Israel so soon turn to idolatry right at the foot of Mt Sinai ?!
After seeing such great work of God on their behalf in rescuing them from Egypt, leading them through the Red Sea, and providing food in the wilderness, we ask ‘how could they?’…
An idol is something we have fashioned with our own hand – it is therefore very foolish to then rely on that to help us. This is what happens to us when sin gets control of us. Do we in western society have any idols ??
