When The Love For God’s House Consumes Us

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Exodus 36:5 “The people are bringing more than enough for doing the work the Lord commanded to be done.” O-bservation: Moses had asked the people of Israel who were willing to bring offerings to build the temple in the wilderness. In a previous verse, the scripture says they continued to bring offerings morning after morning. The truth is, they were consumed with a love for God’s house. A-pplication: It's hard to believe that eventually Moses had to ask the people to stop bringing offerings because there was more than enough. I dare say that if this...

An HONEST Love For God’s House

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 2 Kings 12:15 They did not require an accounting from those to whom they gave the money to pay the workers, because they acted with complete honesty. O-bservation: This is a recounting of the story of King Joash and his desire to repair the Temple of the Lord. The men receiving the money to do the repairs were not required to account for the money they received, because they acted with COMPLETE HONESTY. A-pplication: Joash was only seven years old when he began to reign in Judah. His father, Ahaziah, was wicked, as was his grandmother...
