This week we will be sharing with the kids the story of the 10 Commandments and how the Israelites turned to the idol of the golden calf while Moses was on Mount Sinai. When I read this story I often think, how is it possible that the Israelites can see all the miracles of God first hand and still turn to idols the first time Moses leaves them for the mountain. They saw a river turned to blood, plagues, a river parted so they could walk across it, manna from Heaven and yet they still gave their gold to make a calf to worship. And then I think, surely I wouldn’t have done that if I were there. But then reality sets in and I think of all the miracles I’ve seen in my life and all the things that I let get between me and God. Is God really my first love? As we prepare to share the Big Idea - Love God, I challenge you to think about whether God is your first love? I am praying that this week you will be able to set aside the idols in your life and Love God.
