Terumah | תרומה | “Heave offering “
I find it very interesting that YHVH says He wants a contribution from “every man whose heart moves him” … God didn’t want people who were begrudging givers to build His tabernacle, He wanted those who gave with out of love and the joy of their heart!!
Let each man do according as he hath purposed in his heart: not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. (2 Corinthians 9:7)
If you are feeling reluctant, obligated, strong armed, or anything less than cheerful about your contribution to the Lord, whether it be money, time, goods, or works, I personally think you should not do it. We can not let reasons other than love, move us into service of God, it always is, always was, and must be, a matter of the heart!!
A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. (Proverbs 17:22)
Toms or Hens? Sexing Turkeys
When I went to pick out my poults, I had never sexed a turkey chick before. I looked up the basics online but a lot of it was guess work. The man I bought them from would not tell me which was which because he didn’t want to have favoritism buying (basically us buying up all his hens leaving him with only Thanksgiving dinner candidates). We had to point at which ones we wanted, and he would box them up for us and if we didn’t know what we were doing, well then, that was our problem. (kind of harsh huh!)
I am glad I had researched a bit online beforehand so I would know that the hens would have a more triangular shaped head and the toms a more boxy head before we came. (I research everything!)
