Tomorrow's Sunday School Lesson

Tomorrow's lesson focuses on the behavior of the Israelites when Moses went up on the mountain.  My old King James Version said "they sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play."  And while they were at it they begged Aaron to make them a new god.  He went along with the idea.  Every time I hear this discussed, the conversation always gets around to what our gods are.  I don't know that we need any gods when our attention is turned to eating and drinking and rising up to play.

As long as our focus is not on God, we can make anything or any activity our central theme and we have ceased to worship the God of Heaven and Earth.  We can even still claim to worship God, but it is a lie.  Our interest and our money and our efforts are toward satisfying our own pleasure in food and drink and body sensations.  Just like the Israelites, we sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play, and all focus on God went up the mountain with Moses.
