I’ve heard it said that, in any given group, 20% of the people do 80% of the work. With that in mind, I love the picture of teamwork, unity, and group sacrifice that we see in this chapter of Exodus.
👉 All the people…
Everyone who possessed the resources / Everyone with the skill / All the men and women / The leaders and the people
👉 gave all they had…
Resources / Skills / Creativity / Knowledge / Time
👉 as a free will offering to the Lord (vs 29.)
“Whatever You have given us, Lord, we offer it in service to You.”
How would our families, communities, workplaces, schools, etc. look if we all lived with that mentality? Not looking for the easiest, least inconvenient, most comfortable way to serve – but offering our everything to the Lord. What if everyone contributed that way? Sacrificed that way? Worked that way?
Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men. Colossians 3:23
