More offerings than they needed? Can that ever happen? It can when God moves the heart by His love.

     30 And Moses said unto the children of Israel, See, the LORD hath called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah; 31 And he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship; 32 And to devise curious works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass, 33 And in the cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of wood, to make any manner of cunning work. 34 And he hath put in his heart that he may teach, both he, and Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. 35 Them hath he filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of work, of the engraver, and of the cunning workman, and of the embroiderer, in blue, and in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of them that do any work, and of those that devise cunning work.(KJV)

     1 Then wrought Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in whom the LORD put wisdom and understanding to know how to work all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that the LORD had commanded. 2 And Moses called Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in whose heart the LORD had put wisdom, even every one whose heart stirred him up to come unto the work to do it: 3 And they received of Moses all the offering, which the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the sanctuary, to make it withal. And they brought yet unto him free offerings every morning. 4 And all the wise men, that wrought all the work of the sanctuary, came every man from his work which they made; 5 And they spake unto Moses, saying, The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work, which the LORD commanded to make. 6 And Moses gave commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, Let neither man nor woman make any more work for the offering of the sanctuary. So the people were restrained from bringing. 7 For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and too much.(KJV)

1. Almighty Father, heaven and earth 
With lavish wealth before Thee bow; 
Those treasures owe to Thee their birth, 
Creator, Ruler, Giver, Thou. 

2. The wealth of earth, of sky, of sea, 
The gold, the silver, sparkling gem, 
The waving corn, the bending tree, 
Are Thine; to us Thou lendest them. 

3. To Thee, as early morning’s dew, 
Our praises, alms, and prayer shall rise 
As rose, when joyous earth was new, 
Faith’s patriarchal sacrifice. 

4. We, Lord, would lay, at Thy behest 
The costliest offerings on Thy shrine; 
But when we give, and give our best, 
We give Thee only what is Thine. 

5. O Father, whence all blessings come; 
O Son, Dispenser of God’s store; 
O Spirit, bear our offerings home: 
Lord, make them Thine forevermore.
