November 26– Exodus 36:2-7

November 26– Exodus 36:2-7

And Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab and every craftsman in whose mind the Lord had put skill, everyone whose heart stirred him up to come to do the work. And they received from Moses all the contribution that the people of Israel had brought for doing the work on the sanctuary. They still kept bringing him freewill offerings every morning, so that all the craftsmen who were doing every sort of task on the sanctuary came, each from the task that he was doing, and said to Moses, “The people bring much more than enough for doing the work that the Lord has commanded us to do.” So Moses gave command, and word was proclaimed throughout the camp, “Let no man or woman do anything more for the contribution for the sanctuary.” So the people were restrained from bringing, for the material they had was sufficient to do all the work, and more.

How amazing it must have been that they had to stop people from giving more and doing more.  When was the last time you were at a church and were told, we have enough money, stop giving?

How often do you find a church or ministry that has all the volunteers they need because everyone wants to give back? 

We typically see churches needing to continually recruit more volunteers to help teach, work with babies, direct traffic, or any other number of jobs that are needed to keep a ministry going.

What part can you play in seeing such an amazing thing happen?  When we love Jesus to the point where our desire is to give back to Him anything He asks for, we will see ministries functioning at a completely different level and in turn reaching record numbers of people in Jesus’ name.  What a glorious feeling to know you helped a ministry run at full capacity!

Heavenly Father, what a gift it would be to see everyone using their God given talents, skills and gifts to the point that any ministries we are involved in are working at their most efficient and effective levels.  You are such an amazing God, and rarely ask anything even remotely difficult, in our efforts to show You how very much we love you.  You ask us for so little , but You give us everything.

In Jesus’ name.
