Exodus 32:1-14

1 And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron and said unto him, "Arise, make us gods which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we know not what has become of him." 2 And Aaron said unto them, "Break off the golden earrings which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons and of your daughters, and bring them unto me." 3 And all the people broke off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron. 4 And he received them from their hand, and fashioned it with an engraving tool after he had made it a molten calf; and they said, "These are thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt!" 5 And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation and said, "Tomorrow is a feast to the LORD." 6 And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play.

7 And the LORD said unto Moses, "Go, get thee down; for thy people which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt have corrupted themselves. 8 They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them. They have made themselves a molten calf and have worshiped it, and have sacrificed thereunto and said, `These are thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt!'" 9 And the LORD said unto Moses, "I have seen this people, and behold, it is a stiffnecked people. 10 Now therefore let Me alone, that My wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them; and I will make of thee a great nation." 11 And Moses besought the LORD his God and said, "LORD, why doth Thy wrath wax hot against Thy people, whom Thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power and with a mighty hand? 12 Why should the Egyptians speak and say, `For mischief did He bring them out, to slay them in the mountains and to consume them from the face of the earth'? Turn from Thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against Thy people. 13 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, Thy servants to whom Thou sworest by Thine own self and saidst unto them, `I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever.'" 14 And the LORD repented of the evil which He thought to do unto His people.

Psalm 106:1-23 

1 Praise ye the LORD! O give thanks unto the LORD, 
for He is good, for His mercy endureth for ever.

2 Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? 
Who can show forth all His praise? 
3 Blessed are they that keep judgment 
and he that doeth righteousness at all times. 

4 Remember me, O LORD, with the favor which Thou bearest unto Thy people; 
O visit me with Thy salvation, 
5 that I may see the good of Thy chosen, 
that I may rejoice in the gladness of Thy nation, 
that I may glory with Thine inheritance. 

6 We have sinned with our fathers, 
we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly. 
7 Our fathers understood not Thy wonders in Egypt; 
they remembered not the multitude of Thy mercies, but provoked Thee at the sea, even at the Red Sea.
8 Nevertheless He saved them for His name's sake, 
that He might make His mighty power to be known. 
9 He rebuked the Red Sea also, and it was dried up; 
so He led them through the depths, as through the wilderness. 
10 And He saved them from the hand of him that hated them, 
and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy. 
11 And the waters covered their enemies; there was not one of them left. 
12 Then believed they His words; they sang His praise. 

13 They soon forgot His works; they waited not for His counsel, 
14 but lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert. 
15 And He gave them their request, but sent leanness into their soul. 
16 They also envied Moses in the camp, and Aaron the saint of the LORD. 
17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram. 
18 And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked. 

19 They made a calf in Horeb, and worshiped the molten image. 
20 Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass. 
21 They forgot God their Savior, 
who had done great things in Egypt, 
22 wondrous works in the land of Ham, 
and fearsome things by the Red Sea. 
23 Therefore He said that He would destroy them, had not Moses His chosen stood before Him in the breach, 
to turn away His wrath, lest He should destroy them.

Words of Worship - John 3:16

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 5:30-47

30 "I can of Mine own self do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, because I seek not Mine own will, but the will of the Father who hath sent Me. 31 If I bear witness of Myself, My witness is not true. 32 There is Another that beareth witness of Me, and I know that the witness which He witnesseth of Me is true.

33 "Ye sent unto John, and he bore witness unto the truth. 34 But I receive not testimony from man, but these things I say, that ye might be saved. 35 He was a burning and a shining light, and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. 36 But I have greater witness than that of John; for the works which the Father hath given Me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of Me that the Father hath sent Me. 37 And the Father Himself, who hath sent Me, hath borne witness of Me. Ye have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His shape. 38 And ye have not His Word abiding in you; for Whom He hath sent, Him ye believe not.

39 "Search the Scriptures, for in them ye think ye have eternal life; and it is they which testify of Me. 40 And ye will not come to Me, that ye might have life! 41 I receive not honor from men. 42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. 43 I have come in My Father's name, and ye receive Me not; if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. 44 How can ye believe, who receive honor one from another, and seek not the honor that cometh from God only? 45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father. There is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. 46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed Me, for he wrote of Me. 47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe My words?"


Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiastes 5:18-19

Behold that which I have seen: It is good and comely for one to eat and to drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labor that he taketh under the sun all the days of his life, which God giveth him; for it is his portion. Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given power to eat thereof and to take his portion and to rejoice in his labor, this is the gift of God.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 25:31-46

"When the Son of Man shall come in His glory and all the holy angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the throne of His glory. And before Him shall be gathered all nations, and He shall separate them one from another as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats. And He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on His right hand, `Come, ye blessed of My Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I hungered, and ye gave Me meat; I was thirsty, and ye gave Me drink; I was a stranger, and ye took Me in; naked, and ye clothed Me; I was sick, and ye visited Me; I was in prison, and ye came unto Me.' Then shall the righteous answer Him, saying, `Lord, when saw we Thee hungering and fed Thee, or thirsty and gave Thee drink? When saw we Thee a stranger and took Thee in, or naked and clothed Thee? Or when saw we Thee sick, or in prison, and came unto Thee?' And the King shall answer and say unto them, `Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, ye have done it unto Me.'

"Then shall He say also unto them on the left hand, `Depart from Me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I hungered, and ye gave Me no meat; I was thirsty, and ye gave Me no drink; I was a stranger, and ye took Me not in; naked, and ye clothed Me not; sick and in prison, and ye visited Me not.' Then shall they also answer Him, saying, `Lord, when saw we Thee hungering or athirst or a stranger, or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister unto Thee?' Then shall He answer them, saying, `Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to Me.' And these shall go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into life eternal."
