Today’s Scripture Reading: Exodus 35:1-36:38
So the whole community of Israel left Moses and returned to their tents. All whose hearts were stirred and whose spirits were moved came and brought their sacred offerings to the LORD. They brought all the materials needed for the Tabernacle, for the performance of its rituals, and for the sacred garments. Both men and women came, all whose hearts were willing. They brought to the LORD their offerings of gold—brooches, earrings, rings from their fingers, and necklaces. They presented gold objects of every kind as a special offering to the LORD. –Exodus 35:20-22
I want a heart that is willing.
I want a heart that is stirred.
I don’t want to live some superficial life that is all about me and mine.
I want to live a life that makes a difference in eternity.
Jesus, help me to understand that I have unique gifts, specialized skills, and world-changing abilities that You have been developing in me since You made me in the womb (Psalm 139:13-18).
Lord, I know I can’t do everything, but I can do something. Please show me where, when, and how to make a difference in this world.
Lord, there are so many hurting people. Help my heart to be tender towards them. Use me today to lift someone’s burden; use me today to point someone to You.
In Jesus’ Name. Amen and Amen!
There’s a line in this song by Hillsong that says, “Break my heart for what breaks Yours.” That is my prayer today!
