The Coming Savior, Day 38

No gift is too small. Read Exodus chapter 38.

When those women brought those mirrors as an offering, I imagine they probably didn’t think that was a huge thing. Maybe they did; we can’t be sure. But with all the gifts of gold and silver and precious stones that are mentioned throughout the last several chapters, one wouldn’t typically assume a mirror to be a huge gift. However, these mirrors are one of the only mentions that we see of scripture calling out who gave what specifically to help with the tabernacle project. God saw their gift and he considered it important and worthy of mention in the Holy scriptures.

We can never outgive God and we can never underestimate what God can do with anything that we bring to him, even something as simple as a mirror. What are the gifts that God is asking us to give? What are the small gifts of time, resources, energy, or even money that God wants to take and magnify and do amazing things with, if we are willing to bring it to him?
