Now when the people saw that Moses delayed coming from the mountain, the people gathered together to Aaron and said to him, come, make us gods that shall go before us for as this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him. And Aaron said to them, break off the golden earrings which are in the ears of your wives, your sons and your daughters and bring them to me. So all the people broke off the golden earrings which were in their ears and brought them to Aaron and he received the gold from their hand and he fashioned it with an engraving tool and made a molded calf. Then they said, this is your god, O Israel, that brought you out of the land of Egypt. So when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it and Aaron made a proclamation and said, tomorrow is a feast to the Lord – Exodus 32 : 1 – 5.

When God was planning good for His people, because they could not see with their naked eyes, they started corrupting and contaminating themselves. Even Aaron whom God said should be a spokesman to Moses dance to the tune of contamination also. God had a good plan for Aaron and his children and he accepted to mold image for the Israelites – what a merciful God we serve! He does not look at us the way we are, He does not look at us with our wickedness, He does not look at us with our sinful altitude, He does not judge us with the gravity of our offense. His judgement is with love.

Aaron could no longer bear the pressure of his people but instead of disobeying God, he would have disobeyed his people. Undermining their disobedience, God still showed His mercy to them.

We should not judge ourselves with what we have done wrong because God is more interested in our soul and life. We are very valuable in His presence. His commandment is not to destroy us but to enlighten and strengthen us against the plan of satan.

And Moses said to Aaron, what did this people do to you that you have brought so great a sin upon them? So Aaron said, do not let the anger of my lord become hot. You know the people that they are set on evil – Exodus 32 : 21 – 22.

It is not really easy to lead that was why at a time king Solomon asked for wisdom from God instead of asking for wealth or the life of his enemies. So in everything, we have to pray that God should give us wisdom because it is the principal thing in life.

Father Lord, please, give us the wisdom we need in our daily lives to enable us fulfill our destiny in Jesus name.
