This is a familiar scene in our society, the words change but the essential message is always the same; a person is not open to advice because his or her mind is already closed through pride.
2 Timothy 3:16 - All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
Proverbs 28:26 - He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.
Proverbs 3:1-35 - My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:
Proverbs 20:18 - [Every] purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war.
Psalms 119:105 - Thy word [is] a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
1 Kings 12:6-19 - And king Rehoboam consulted with the old men, that stood before Solomon his father while he yet lived, and said, How do ye advise that I may answer this people?
Proverbs 4:13 - Take fast hold of instruction; let [her] not go: keep her; for she [is] thy life.
Proverbs 1:7 - The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of knowledge: [but] fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Proverbs 13:10 - Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised [is] wisdom.
Romans 12:2 - And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Matthew 7:16-20 - Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

1 John 4:1-3 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.
Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.
1 Peter 5:8 Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

I look at how God overlooked the humanity of Moses and forgave him for his anger..
God understands us, he knows we are human he knows our flaws and our weaknesses and he is so quick to forgive us all of our iniquities, but what I love is that God goes one step further and he personally restores us...hallelujah we serve such a good God!
I imagine Moses was walking back up that mountain shamefully mortified; not only at what had taken place with the Israelites ..but now he was to face God on the issues of how he had acted in such anger. I'm also quite positive, he was not looking forward to the grueling carving of recreating the Commandments.

John 3:36 Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.
John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
