This is the second part of yesterday’s Verse of the Day:

6 Then the leaders of the fathers’ houses, leaders of the tribes of Israel, the captains of thousands and of hundreds, with the officers over the king’s work, offered willingly. 7 They gave for the work of the house of God five thousand talents and ten thousand darics of gold, ten thousand talents of silver, eighteen thousand talents of bronze, and one hundred thousand talents of iron. 8 And whoever had precious stones gave them to the treasury of the house of the Lord, into the hand of Jehiel the Gershonite. 9 Then the people rejoiced, for they had offered willingly, because with a loyal heart they had offered willingly to the Lord; and King David also rejoiced greatly.

1 Chronicles 29:6-9 (NKJV)

From the Life Application Bible:

These leaders displayed a right attitude toward their money by giving willingly to God’s work. This attitude is described by Paul in 2 Corinthians 9:7: “You must each make up your own mind as to how much you should give. Don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. For God loves the person who gives cheerfully.” (NLT). When we are generous because we are thankful, our attitude can inspire others. Give generously to God’s work.
