Quotes to Consider:

A. W. Pink: "Had there been no Moses to plead their cause, Israel had perished. And had we no High Priest to plead before God the merits of His atoning sacrifice on our behalf, we too would perish in this wilderness scene. It is the ministry of Christ on High which succours and sustains us while we journey to the promised inheritance" (Gleanings in Exodus, p. 333).

George M. Ophoff on Exodus 33:10: "What inspires this worship is the consideration that instead of destroying them in a moment, the Lord in His great mercy draws nigh to Moses their representative at the tent of meeting, and thus draws nigh to them, and actually inclines His ear unto the cries that Moses utters in their behalf. It is at the sight of this hope-promising spectacle, that they worship. The true Israel praises. And in the heart of this Israel there is a voice that says, ‘The Lord God, merciful and gracious’" (Standard Bearer, vol. 13, p. 17).

John Calvin on the fifth commandment: "... children who rebel against their fathers and mothers readily cite first one thing and then another ... people who stir up trouble against their superiors have plenty of excuses. But it serves to no avail. The reason? Because [the] God who has established positions of authority in this world also intends for them to be kept" (Sermons on the Ten Commandments, p. 147).

D M Lloyd-Jones on Ephesians 6:6: "... servants are to obey their masters, but are not always to be keeping their eye on the master, not keeping their eye on the master more than on the particular task. In other words, they must not merely do the minimum, just sufficient to keep themselves out of trouble ..." (Life in the Spirit in Marriage, Home & Work, p. 345).
