Quote du Jour - David Hood

The Israelites had just heard God speaking from the top of Sinai. They had seen the fire and smoke. They had felt the earth tremble. They built a golden calf to worship THAT god -- the correct God -- but it was still idolatry. This caused Moses to smash the original set of Ten Commandments on the ground, symbolizing their breaking of God’s commandments in their idolatrous worship.

We can have the correct God in mind, but if we worship Him through things we tried to make holy -- which He never made holy -- we are guilty of the exact same idolatry -- and it doesn’t matter if those things are gold or days.
