Exodus 35:29 The children of Israel brought a willing offering unto the LORD, every man and woman, whose heart made them willing to bring for all manner of work, which the LORD had commanded to be made by the hand of Moses.
The people of God brought a willing offering. They did it because God touched their hearts to obey! God wanted them to give. He had provided the funds and goods that they had. They obeyed.
I believe that there is a great lesson here. We should be givers. God has given us everything that we have. He has taught us to give. He modeled it. He taught it in the Old Testament. He taught it in the New Testament. There are many things that need to be taken care of in the ministry. We have pastoral staff to pay, building, utilities, missionaries, and many other expenses.
God gave us what we have. He has ministry that He wants to see done. He touches our hearts and we give.
Are you a giver? Do you support the work of your church financially? Do you give with a willing heart?
