What Is Your Golden Calf


Deuteronomy 9 and 10 speaks to the children of Isreal before they were to go and take possession of the land God had given them. He reminds them of their stiff necked ways that almost resulted in their demise in the desert.  Their gift was not because of their worthiness but because of the wickedness of the people in the land and because of the promise God made to Abraham.  They were blessed not because of their righteousness or connection but because of his mercy. 

We look at this story and wonder how any sane person would trade their worship of the almighty for an inanimate object. Then when we consider how we value our homes, cars, clothes and status we find the glitter that supplants our faith
