Verse of the Day: Israel’s Special Offering Declared by Moses

June 6, 2007


4 Then Moses said to the whole community of Israel, “This is what the LORD has commanded: 5 Take a sacred offering for the LORD. Let those with generous hearts present the following gifts to the LORD:

gold, silver, and bronze;

6 blue, purple, and scarlet thread;

fine linen and goat hair for cloth;

7 tanned ram skins and fine goatskin leather;

acacia wood;

8 olive oil for the lamps;

spices for the anointing oil and the fragrant incense;

9 onyx stones, and other gemstones to be set in the ephod and the priest’s chestpiece.

Exodus 35:4-9 (NLT)

From the Life Application Bible:

God did not require these special offerings, but he appealed to people with generous hearts. Only those who were willing to give were invited to participate. God loves people who give cheerfully (2 Corinthians 9:7). Our giving should be from love and generosity, not from a guilty conscience.
