Exodus 36:3-5

They received from Moses all the offerings the children of Israel brought for all the works for making the holy place, and they continued bringing him freewill offerings every morning. Then all the wise men who were doing all the work of the holy place came, each according to the work he was doing, and they spoke to Moses, saying, “The people bring much more than enough for the work the Lord commanded us to do.”

Personal Challenge

It amazes me how much can be accomplished in this world when God's people act in alignment with His will. In the day of Moses, he was asked to build a tabernacle for God so that God could dwell amongst His people. Moses put the call out for the materials needed to the people of God and set aside the craftsmen to do the construction. In short time the craftsmen had to ask Moses to tell the people to stop because they had much more than the could ever use. Today's modern church has yielded so much to letting the governments of this world take care of those in need that we no longer understand the principles of God about giving to Him so that His work can be completed. Missionaries go unfunded or have to operate on shoestring budgets. Churches must go into major debt to build their facilities. People impacted by major disasters go untaken care of while we, the members of the body of Christ see to our own wants. Lord, have Mercy! Lord, have Mercy! Lord, have Mercy!
