Exodus 32:7-14. And the LORD changed his mind about the disaster that he planned to bring on his people.
In today’s reading from Exodus, Moses argues for God to change his mind about destroying the people of Israel, and we’re told that “the LORD changed his mind.” The LORD changed his mind! Can you imagine? Moses and Juliet knew God, lived their relationship with God in such a way that they also knew the intimacies and frustrations of being able to argue with a God who is not a cold and distant unmoved mover, but a real and relational presence.
