No Offering Today

Daily Reading

Exodus 36-38

Daily Thought

Have you ever been to a church where the pastor told the congregation to keep their wallets in their pockets, we have collected more than enough this year? “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” (Exodus 36:6-7). You can stop giving …and this was a building campaign, no less!

Building the tabernacle of God transformed something inside the Israelites, because their whining mouths became willing hearts and they “kept bringing Moses freewill offerings every morning”–so much so, that Moses had to put a stop to it. He wasn’t after the wealth of the people, but their hearts, and that was delivered in abundance. Once God has your heart, the rest follows.

Daily Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your abounding grace toward me. May I return my thanks to You with glad heart, a serving spirit, and an open wallet. I pray for a thankful heart that is displayed in a cheerful generosity. You have called us to love others with the same love we have for You. May my love be one of action, demonstrating itself in service and compassion.

Amen
