The Living Tableau- Giving

Exodus 36:6-7 (NKJV)
6 So Moses gave a commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, “Let neither man nor woman do any more work for the offering of the sanctuary.” And the people were restrained from bringing, 7 for the material they had was sufficient for all the work to be done—indeed too much.

Pastor’s Notes

Giving to the glory and honor of God means that we understand that everything that we have is from God and God is expecting us to be good stewards of everything that He has provided. Sharing is a grace of God and God expects us to tithe and share with others. As Christians, sharing should be a normal response to our faith and obedience.

God so graciously entrusts all that we have and own to us and only asks that we return a minimum of 10% back to service and care of others. Giving a minimum of 10% to ministry for the well-being of humankind is a special gift and recognizes that we are representing Christ as we give.

Giving is a means of worship! Let’s be ever mindful that God expects us to give in proportion to what is entrusted to us. Let us give freely so we can also receive freely. God blesses us to bless others. God will advise us when we have given enough as Moses advised the people in Exodus 36. Wouldn’t that be a great problem to have?
