Exodus 35:10-36:38

Reading how the “offering” of talent and material was approached by God and Moses, makes me yearn for this approach, by which I mean, both asking, receiving and giving, in our churches today. There was no manipulation, just the stating of an object of fact, the Building of the Tabernacle,” that God has told Moses to build. The effect of this method, the freely giving of what they had. I think the generosity of the people, their willingness to dedicate their talents and any material goods they had, stems from the “Fear of the Lord.” When you know that God will supply all your needs, and has in the past, when you know within your very being that God has your back and will take care of you, the Fear of the Lord becomes a natural state of being out of which you operate.

The fear of the Lord also causes a Believer to walk in boldness toward the ways of man. We will stand up for what is right and righteous even if no one else in the room is willing to take a stand. Operating out of the Fear of the Lord may not win you friends but it will cause them to respect you even if they are trying to take you out, and I don’t mean to dinner.

Grace and peace,
Ramona
