Exodus 38:24 KJV
All the gold that was occupied for the work in all the work of the holy place , even the gold of the offering, was twenty and nine talents, and seven hundred and thirty shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary.
I did a quick check on Google, to find the actual value of all the gold offerings that were made towards the building of the “Holy Place.” This is what I found out:
A talent of gold was about 34 kilos and a shekel was about 11 grams. So that’s about 986 kilos + 8,030 grams = 994.03 kg worth of gold.
Value of this today is about $40.5m or GHS 117.3m
This was just the worth of gold Moses and his team team accounted for. I won’t go into silver and bronze and all other valuables.
Even though nobody really requested, Moses opted to be accountable to the people. He accounted for every single item donated / offered by the people.
No matter the level of your anointing, certain attributes are expected of your leadership. So the ministry/business may be yours, but be accountable for all your receipts and expenses. It is a good sign of wisdom.
Have a blessed Friday.
