Exodus 35:21, 22, 29 – We see ‘willing’ used 4 times in this passage.  As 2 Corinthians 9:7 says “Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.”

Matthew 27:51 – We read in Exodus about the elaborate preparations for the Tabernacle, including the coverings & curtains designed to keep people and the elements out. Now the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom. Mankind could once again personally, im-media-tely (without a mediator) connect to his Maker.

Psalm 34:6 – A well known Christian leader would write this verse under his autograph. I appreciated the humility of this leader – recognizing that he was merely a poor man saved by the Lord.
