25 The Lord said to Moses,
A frequently repeated phrase throughout the book of Exodus. It highlights both the authority of Moses to lead as well as his role as God’s authentic messenger to the nation.
2 “Speak to the people of Israel, that they take for me a contribution. From every man whose heart moves him you shall receive the contribution for me.
“a contribution” -God gives instruction to Moses to begin assembling the raw materials needed to construct the tabernacle of the Lord. Remember, in the request for a contribution, Israel would be giving largely from the spoils God recently supplied the nation as they departed Egypt (Exodus 12:36).
APP: God ultimately provides all that is needed to accomplish those tasks to which He has called His people.
