July 3 - Executing the Plan
Exodus 36:2-38

Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab and every skilled person together.  It was time to go to work.  Then, the Israelites began bringing their offerings.

Every morning … every single morning, the Israelites continued to bring their offerings.

The offerings got so out of control that the craftsmen had to stop working and ask Moses to stop the offerings.

Moses had to give an order that no one was to bring anything else as an offering for the sanctuary.  Scripture tells us that they were restrained from bringing anything more, they had already brought more than enough to do all the work.

Too many items for the sanctuary of the Lord.

Do you love the Lord so much that you offer too much … that you offer so much someone has to restrain you?

What amazing love!

Then the craftsmen went back to work and in Exodus 39:43, Moses inspected the work and saw that they had done it just as the Lord had commanded.  So Moses blessed them.
