You Broke Them, Moses, You Make New Ones

To read the Bible in a year, read Exodus 34-36.
God cut out tables of stone and gave them to Moses with the Ten Commandments written on them. An incident occurred wherein Moses became angry with the Israelites and threw down the stone tablets, breaking them. Therefore, God told Moses, “Cut two tablets of stone like the first ones, and I will write on these tablets the words that were on the first tablets which you broke” (Exodus 34:1). Moses broke them, so Moses had to get new ones. You break it, you fix it. Afterwards, he could go back up the mountain to God, but Moses had to make sure that he went up alone (v. 2, 3). If someone breaks something of yours, do you want him to fix it? If you break something of another person’s, do you fix it?
