Read: Exodus 35:20-29
Packing groceries into the trunk of my car, I glanced at the vehicle next to me. Through the back window, I could see baskets full of bright red tomatoesshiny, plump, and better looking than any I had seen in the store. When the cars owner appeared seconds later, I said, What great looking tomatoes! She replied, I had a good crop this year. Would you like some? Surprised by her willingness to share, I gladly accepted. She gave me several free tomatoes to take homethey tasted as good as they looked!
We see an even greater spirit of generosity in the Israelites when they gave to build the tabernacle of the Lord. When asked to provide materials for the sanctuary, everyone whose spirit was willing . . . brought the Lords offering for the work of the tabernacle (Ex. 35:21). The Israelites eagerly donated their gold jewelry, colored thread, fine linen, silver, bronze, gemstones, and spices. Some also gave their time and talents (vv.25-26).
If we follow the Israelites example and willingly donate our resources, we please and honor God with our attitude and offerings. The Lord, who sees and knows our thoughts and hearts, loves cheerful givers. He Himself is the best example of generosity (John 3:16).
Good evening, Mayor, and thank you for today’s sustenance for body and soul.
Are you back to mud yet? More snow?
Good evening, Marine...((HUGS))...has spring finally made an appearance?
We are spring by day and winter by night.
No snow, just mud again. It is supposed to be 60 tomorrow too.
We will see I guess.
