‘Tell the Israelites to bring me an offering. You are to receive the offering for me from everyone whose heart prompts them to give …
Then have them make a sanctuary for me, and I will dwell among them.’
This was no levy or tax, but an opportunity to have a part in the wonderful plan where God would dwell among his people.
We also can build useful and beautiful things into God’s house today, to form a loving community and witness to his grace in this world.
