How did the writing get on the tablets of stone that God gave to Moses?
Who made the golden calf the people were worshipping?
How did Aaron say they got the calf?
LESSON: When confronted with his sin, Aaron sought to blame others. When we fall, we should admit it, and not blame others.
PRAYER: Father, I admit my sin and seek thy forgiveness. Amen!
How often we overlook our own failures and sins while criticizing the faults of others. A woman named Ruth told how she came to see the truth. The building across the alley from where she lived was only a few feet away, and she could easily look into her neighbor's apartment. Ruth had never met the woman who lived there, but every day she could see her as she sewed and read. After several months, she noticed that she could not see her clearly any more. Ruth couldn't understand why the woman didn't wash her windows. One sunny afternoon, Ruth decided to do some house cleaning, which included washing her windows. Later that day, she sat down to rest by her window, and to her amazement, she could clearly see her neighbor sitting in her apartment. Ruth thought, "Well finally, she washed her windows!" By now you have probably guessed what happened. Ruth's own windows were the ones that needed to be washed. Are looking through smudges in your life and criticizing others? In Luke 6:41 Jesus said, "Why do you look at the speck in your brother's eye, but do not perceive that plank in your own?" We must ask God to forgive us for our own flaws before we try to help others with theirs.
