What if you falter?, Exodus 32:1-34:35

The lesson, "What If You Falter?" from Exodus 32:1-34:35, illustrates how wrong thinking results in sin. Israel tried to worship the Lord using a golden calf. God had given the Israelites the tabernacle elements and nothing in those included a representation of God Himself. The making of an idol was specifically prohibited.

Gary Payne posted his PowerPoint slides for the lesson already, but I'm still working on mine.

The Israelites attempted to worship the Lord using an idol which immediately led to further sin (see Exodus 32:5-6). Since they had just agreed to God's Law, this made me wonder, "What were they thinking?"

I will use this idea to open my lesson with a slide with quotes like the following:
