“Take ye from among you an offering unto the Lord: whosoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, an offering of the Lord; gold, and silver, and brass,”
Anyone can have a willing heart; but in order for us to be willing, we must first have a giving heart. So often when we hear the word “offering” we think of ushers passing a plate throughout the congregation so that the church can pay the bills, the pastor, or help a ministry or missionary. An “offering” is so much more than giving money for a cause.
“And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an offering: of every man that giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall take my offering.”
When we give, we also receive. We can give our time, our service, our prayers, our support, our praise, our worship, and so much more to our Lord. Every time we give of ourselves willingly, He blesses us and rewards us.
2 Corinthians 9:7
“Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.”
God desires us to give our hearts cheerfully and willingly. Giving must come from the heart. A giving heart gives us a willing heart.

Willing to stand.
Willing to be still.

Are you willing today?
