January 20 - dfree® Devotions for Financial Freedom

So all the skilled workers who were doing all the work on the sanctuary left what they were doing and said to Moses, "The people are bringing more than enough for doing the work the Lord commanded to be done." Exodus 36:4&5 NIV

It is a magnificent accomplishment when a group of people pool their resources and achieve a common goal. No matter how small the activity or short lived the activity, there is such a good feeling that accompanies being a part of an effort that reaches its intended goal. If you have never been a part of something like that, try it - I think you will like it!

But it must be an even greater feeling to be a part of some activity that not only reached its goal but it surpassed its goal. That is what these men working on building the sanctuary reported to Moses as having happened. Could these have been the same people that previously gave their gold to be turned into an idol to be worshipped? Well if not the same men, certainly men connected to those men in some way. What a turn of events.

And what an show of support. A philanthropic cause that had to stop collecting
because it had surpassed its need.

These people not only had the means to support but they also had a desire to support. Maybe God blessed them with the means because they had the desire.

"God, help me to never be satisfied with giving or doing just enough. Give me the desire to meet the needs of a great cause. I will trust you to provide the means. Amen."
