Exodus 35:21 – And everyone who was willing and whose heart moved him came and brought an offering to the Lord. (NIV 1978)
My Musing – We should give willingly as we are moved by God to do so. Sometimes we are moved but we give grudgingly or guiltily. Or we give when God is not moving us to give. Both need to be present.
My Advice – Be careful of the cause that you give your time, talent and money to. It may not be a cause that God is calling you to. But when He does call you, make sure you give willingly. Otherwise it is an empty and worthless gesture.
