Ex 35:4 And Moses spake unto all the congregation
of the children of Israel, saying, This is the thing which the LORD commanded, saying, 5 Take ye from among you an offering
unto the LORD: whosoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, an offering of the LORD; gold, and silver, and brass,
Ex 35:20 ¶ And all the congregation of the children of Israel departed from the
presence of Moses. 21 And they came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing, and
they brought the LORD'S offering to the work of the tabernacle of the congregation, and for all his service, and for the holy
garments. 22 And they came, both men and women, as many as were willing hearted, and brought bracelets, and earrings, and
rings, and tablets, all jewels of gold: and every man that offered offered an offering of gold unto the LORD.'
Giving is a natural part of every believer's life. As we follow Jesus and become like
Him we learn to give like Him. We have been granted the priviledge of stewardship over God's heritage. Giving back is a vital
part of our stewardship. God is not just interested in what we give but in how we give. It is our heart expression to our
Lord that we appreciate what He has done for us and love Him because of what He is to us.
