-Now we see the working out of the things God had commanded in the tabernacle construction. The people had a gracious and giving nature to bring in all that was needed to accomplish the large task of providing a material sanctuary that the LORD could dwell in during their journey through the wilderness. Whoever’s heart was moved and stirred brought a freewill offering of all that was required for the tabernacle. Many times the text refers to their hearts in regards to their willingness in the contribution. *Application* We know that the LORD loves a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9:7). This is the great requirement when it comes to our contribution to Him and His work. This is not only treasure (i.e. money, valuables, etc.), but our time and talent. Notice how Bezalel was given the Spirit of God in wisdom, understanding, knowledge, and all craftsmanship (Exodus 35:31). He used his gifts and abilities for the work of the LORD as he was designed to do. Not only that, but he taught others to fill them with the skills needed to accomplish the work. God places in us incredible creative abilities and inventive work. We should have a heart to use these talents for His glory and praise. Be a giver!
