I don’t like to beg. Asking people to give is sometimes like drawing blood. It’s hard to convince people to part with their possessions.
When the tabernacle was being built, Moses asked the people to bring contributions. But we have to remember that these people only had a limited supply of possessions and no opportunity to earn more. But those who gave were moved from within.
“And they came, everyone whose hearts stirred him, and everyone whose spirit moved him, and brought the Lord’s contribution to be used for the tent of meeting, and for its service, and for the holy garments.” (Exo 35:21)
So the better option is to allow their hearts to be stirred and their spirits to be moved.
