Moses was a man of two loves - a love for God and a love for His people. It seemed to be two incompatible loves, but they are actually one. His prayers expressed the very heart of God - one of compassion and mercy.
Moses was away for too long – 40 days on Mount Sinai
• The people couldn’t wait any longer, and so they decided to make themselves a new god – a golden calf
• Even before Moses step down from the mountain, the Lord told him what was happening at the foot of the mount.
