Re:Verse passage – 1 Chronicles 29:1-11 (day three)
“With all my ability I have provided for the house of my God…”
To live in the state of mind in which you can’t tell whether you or God has possession of a treasured item because you and God are so unified in the intent of how that item will be used – it seems like that would be such a pure way of life. Some people in the Bible appear to have come very close to that state of mind: the poor widow who placed all she had into the temple treasury; Zacchaeus the tax collector; Mary, the woman who anointed Jesus. We see here that same kind of spirit in David, who, for all his mercurial and ruinous patterns of living, was never one to covet wealth. Living with abandon comes with its pitfalls. One of the upsides, though, is generosity.
