God Knows the Details of Every Gift
Twelve times in Numbers 7, you will read what the leader of each tribe brought to the Lord, and you will notice that the gifts were the same. Why did the Lord have Moses take the time to write out the gifts from every tribe, whereas Moses could have simply said that each tribe gave the same?
Perhaps the Lord wants us to know that each gift we give to Him, although it might be the same as the person next to us, or the same that has been offered millions of times through the ages, yet what we offer personally, He receives it gladly from us. DR
The Rich Get Richer, and the Poor Get Poorer
Jesus declared of the spiritual side of man, that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer,
“For whoever has, to him more will be given; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him” (Mark 4.25).
If you have a good and honest heart, you will be rich in the spirit, and if you continue with that heart, your riches in the spirit will increase, but if your heart is neglectful toward the word of God, even what little knowledge you have will decrease. DR
