Wesley's Notes for Exodus 25:2


25:2 Speak unto the children of Israel that they bring me an offering - This offering was to be given willingly, and with the heart. It was not prescribed to them what or how much they must give, but it was left to their generosity, that they might shew their good - will to the house of God, and the offices thereof.


Discussion for Exodus 25:2

  • Brianna for verse 2
    Although offerings were apart of the mosaic law, this scripture highlights that they were given freely, and not necessarily out of compulsion. As the bible states God loves a cheerful giver. This encourages me to give freely of my time and self in my service to my God Jehovah.
