In 1 Chronicles 22:14, David did something.
Now, behold, in my trouble I have prepared for the house of the LORD an hundred thousand talents of gold, and a thousand thousand talents of silver; and of brass and iron without weight; for it is in abundance: timber also and stone have I prepared; and thou mayest add thereto.
1 Chronicles 22:14 KJV
If you look in thr margin of most King James Bibles you will see that the word “trouble” also means “poverty”. In other words, David started saving money and supplies to to build a temple for God even when he was “poor”. Even when it was not convenient or easy to do so.
- Ponder: How often do you give excuses for not saving money because you feel you earn little?
