A Little Excitement

A Little Excitement Goes a Long Way

Exodus
36:2-5 (Message)

Moses summoned Bezalel and Oholiab along with all whom God had gifted with the
ability to work skillfully with their hands. The men were eager to get started
and engage in the work. They took from Moses all the offerings that the
Israelites had brought for the work of constructing the Sanctuary. The people
kept on bringing in their freewill offerings, morning after morning. All the
artisans who were at work making everything involved in constructing the
Sanctuary came, one after another, to Moses, saying, “The people are
bringing more than enough for doing this work that God has commanded us to
do!”

Today’s passage is a great example of what a little excitement can do. The Lord
commanded Moses to build a sanctuary. When Moses told the people what God
commanded of them, they were consumed with excitement! The skilled workers immediately
began construction and the rest of the Israelites made free will offerings day
after day. Everyone played a part in completing God’s work and they did it with
a great attitude.

As believers, we should also possess a good attitude when doing God’s work.
Attitude matters! By choosing the right attitude, we operate out of abundance
and not out of a deficit.

The Israelites purposed in their hearts to do the will of the Lord, and because of this, there
was more than enough to complete God’s work!

I ask you today, to check your attitude. Have you purposed in your heart to complete the work of the Lord?

Can He depend on you to follow His commands?

Make Him Great In This Place,
