today's reading.
Exodus 32:1-14    When the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the mountain, the people gathered themselves together to Aaron and said to him, "Up, make us gods who shall go before us. As for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him"...

the blog.
The Israelites were a handful for Moses and we see that clearly with the golden calf incident. Moses is barely out of sight when the people turn away from God and jump head first into idol worship. A very foolish decision that angers God. "Now therefore let me alone, so my wrath may burn hot against them and I may consume them in order that I may make a great nation of you" (Exodus 32:10). Even so, Moses intercedes for this "stiff-necked" people asking God to spare them, and God relents. 

So what does this passage show us about caring and praying for people around us who aren't in alignment with God? Who do you know that needs your prayers today? Tami
