Commentary: The Lord continues to provide detailed instructions for His work. Often His instructions point out individuals who are blessed in a particular work. These could be called spiritual gifts, many of which are still prevalent today! Often our talents are overlooked, and not recognized for what they are: gifts from God! While Moses is receiving these instructions from the Lord, including a reminder to keep the Sabbath holy, the Israelites quickly forgot all that the Lord had done for them. Moses’ failure to quickly reappear resulted in them worshipping false gods, built by their own hands! Following Moses’ intervention, the Israelites were punished for turning away from the Lord.
Focus Verses: 32:1-6 Do you ever get impatient waiting on the Lord and His timing? Do you react like the Israelites? What will you turn to? How can you prevent such action in the future?
