Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Cor. 15:58

A Big Ole Cow and giveaway!! (Day 27/365)

Day 27: Exodus 30-32

Main People:
Moses, Aaron, Israelites

Key Points:
*Today, we are reading about making plans for the incense altar, washbasin, anointing oil, and incense

*Craftsman are also filled with the Spirit of God. Usually, we think that only preachers are ‘called’ or the only ones filled with that much ‘spirit’. But we learn here that’s not the case. Even if you aren’t a preacher, your talent is God given and He’s put His spirit in you to help you do what He’s called you to do.

*The Sabbath is an important day of rest… do you rest on the Sabbath? (Um… I don’t L . I need too, though. I’d feel better.)

*The Golden Calf—This is the part that makes me want to shake my head at Aaron, but to be fair, what would we have done in his situation.
And maybe not to the same extent, but we are more like the Israelites here than we like to admit. God had just saved them two/three months before. Moses went on the mountain and the people forgot.

We are the same. God can do a miracle for us one day, and the next we get down, upset, whatever wanting more. And we find our ‘happiness’ in other things besides God—we make our own ‘golden calf’.

Maybe we should get a notebook and write down all the wonderful things God has done for us, that way, we won’t forget when one thing doesn’t go our way.

*Moses, being an angry person, broke the tablets that God had JUST written on!

*And a bunch of people died…

Verses that Jumped Out at Me:

Exodus 32:8—How quickly they have turned away from the way I commanded them to live!

What is your God-given talent?

Tomorrow’s Reading: Exodus 33-35
