1. Idolatry had a strong attraction force with the Israelites.
2. We cannot worship God and idolatry at the same time.
3. We need to commit to worship and serve the only true God.
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
2 Peter 3:9 (NIV)
