“He said to Aaron, ‘What did these people do to you that you led them into such great sin?’”
This is the scene where Moses comes down off Mount Sinai with God’s commandments and finds his brother Aaron, who he left in charge, joining in with the wild crowd of dancing, hooting and hollering people who are worshipping fake gods. Not only has he joined them, he’s helped them make the idols they’re dancing around.
He was supposed to know better!
Maybe he feared the out-of-control crowd or maybe he wanted to be accepted by them. Perhaps both. But what he did was dead wrong.
Now, we might think, how could he have done that? How weak of him?
Oh, but following the crowd is often too big of a temptation not to do.
Think about it.
You’re standing around with a group of friends when gossiping starts. Instead of speaking up for what is right, you want to be accepted so you listen in, you might even add to the conversation with what you know about so and so.
Every time we join the crowd and don’t stand firm on what is right…just like Aaron, we are dead wrong.
Be a leader when it counts.
Making Mondays less mundane with a word from the Word.
Looking forward, pressing on and seeking God in every bump and twist in the road.
