Moving Hearts

In Exodus we read “25:1 The Lord said to Moses, 2 “Speak to the people of Israel, that they take for me a contribution. From every man whose heart moves him you shall receive the contribution for me.”

When our hearts are aligned with God we are moved to be more giving. That feeling has manifested for me in different ways. At times I have felt an urge to give away something I valued, or my heart senses a person would get more joy than I do from a posession. Or maybe I feel the urge to buy something for someone.

These urges become stronger when in the spirit. We can take these urges as signs of God’s work through us. In Exodus this giving helped to sustain God’s temple and His preists. Now adays, in this covenant, our giving supports our churches and countless other around us as God silently fills the world’s needs through His children.
