They exchanged their Glory for an image of a bull, which eats grass (Psalm 106:20 NIV).
Lord, I want to scoff at the Israelites
who worshipped the golden calf.
They had experienced Your powerful presence
in the pillars of cloud and fire.
They had been delivered from oppression
by Your strong hand.
But God, what idols have I worshipped instead of You?
Have I dreamt of wealth and fame and comfort?
Have I desired extravagant gifts and an opulent lifestyle?
Lord, I recognize that I am Your beloved
and You have generously blessed me.
I have everything I need or desire.
Make me content and generous with what I have.
Let me desire nothing but you.
If I strive to acquire more,
let it be more love and intimacy with You,
and more righteousness that comes only from Jesus. Amen.
