Another Chance

Exodus 32:1-14

Israel’s impatience with God’s providence led them to compromise true worship for the passions of the flesh. When Moses pleaded with God to remember His people and not destroy them, God changed His action and extended mercy. The true intercessor gains a response from the heart of God as he or she becomes a co-worker with God.

Two significant truths speak to us about this story:

1. God listens to us. He always hears our prayers.

2. God forgives our sins. God gave the Hebrews another chance, and He continues to do so for all humanity.

How good are we at giving people another chance? Do we want to give them what we think they deserve, or do we show mercy? Perhaps today is a good time to ask God to examine our ministries, individually and corporately. Are we reaching out in love and mercy to the weak, poor, disenfranchised, and homeless? God offers a clean slate when we repent. He is the God of second chances.
