Idols really? After all the signs and wonders that The LORD had performed in leading them out of Egypt, why would they even think of doing such a thing? The scripture details that when Moses saw the dancing around the calf he burned with anger at what they had done. The Israelites desired a golden calf because they felt separated from Moses and God. They were fearful of where Moses and God had gone. They didn’t like this fear and were growing restless. They didn’t have faith that God had a good plan and that Moses would give it to them. Therefore, they felt in their hearts that they needed a god that they could control and physically touch in times of stress, fear, or worry. It seems crazy right! However, are we really different from the Israelites?
