Week of November 9th
And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:
"Speak unto the children of Israel, that they may bring me an offering: of every man that giveth willingly with his heart, ye shall take my offering."
-EXODUS 25: 1,2. King James Version
WHY should GOD as US to give GOD anything?
GOD owns the very air that we breathe. GOD owns our molecules, distant galaxies, all the fish in the sea...
And willingly? Did you get that? Why does GOD, even in the Old Testament, ask us to give... willingly?
* * *
The asterisks are there because your answer is more important than mine.
Think about the nicest people you know...are they generous? Could GOD be asking us to give for our own sakes?
