The first aliyah (section) of Parshas Terumah discusses the gifts that the Jewish People brought to contribute to the building of the mishkan. Bnei Yisroel were so excited about the opportunity to give, that they continued giving until Moshe had to stop them and tell them it was enough. At this moment they were mimicking the middos of Hashem, Who is the Ultimate Giver. The mikdash itself was a place of giving - we provided a resting place for the Shechinah and gave korbanos to please Hashem. Today our avodah (service) is quite the opposite, as our tefillos are centered around asking for our needs. We yearn to return to the giving model of avodah, rather than receiving. This is the G-dliness inherent in each of us, which we try to tap into by inspiring that natural generosity that lies within.
