Moreover, in my delight in the house of my God, the treasure I have of gold and silver, I give to the house of my God, over and above all that I have already provided for the holy temple, namely, 3,000 talents of gold, of the gold of Ophir, and 7,000 talents of refined silver, to overlay the walls of the buildings; of gold for the things of gold and of silver for the things of silver, that is, for all the work done by the craftsmen. Who then is willing to consecrate himself this day to the Lord?” 1 Chronicles 29:3-5
David led out in generosity by giving gold and silver for the building of the temple that would be constructed by Solomon. Leaders are always best when they lead by example. He did it out of delight. When we are passionate about the work of God, it is a delight to see His plans come about.
How about me? What work of God am I passionate about right now? I am excited about our school ministry, the community west store and life groups. Those are really exciting to me.
Lord, it is a delight to give myself to the desires on Your heart. Thank you for the invitation.
