Skills:  Use the skills that YHWH has placed in your heart to do and use those skills Willingly to benefit the building of YHWH's kingdom.

Willing heart is the heart YHWH is looking for.  These people who had skill were considered a "wise hearted" people.  YHWH placed His desires in them and they heard and did according to the wisdom place in them to complete the work of His dwelling place.

Ecc 11:9 Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies.  Thou anointest my head with oil, my cup runneth over.  And surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.  And I will dwell in the house of YHWH, forever!

5 Offerings
Burnt Offerings

Sin offering in which they laid hands on the sacrifice and made transfer of sins to the animal, sacrificed the animal and then washed the sacrifice is likened to Acts 2:38:
 And Kĕpha said to them, “Repent, and let each one of you be immersed in the Name of יהושע Messiah for the forgiveness of sins.1 And you shall receive the gift of the Set-apart Spirit.
Here you see the confession (or transfer of sin) onto the sacrifice (Yahshuah) then the washing in the water (aka baptism).  All symbolic of the temple sacrifice service for sin.

Our prayers and praise are a sweet savor/sacrifice to YHWH and preferred over physical sacrifices.
Abba reminds us that it is not sacrifices and burnt offerings He desires, it is our love, because when we love Him, He knows that we will honor Him and His ways.  Sacrifices and burnt offerings were given because people had done things that He told them not to do... He would rather have us love Him by doing what He asks than to have to make offerings for our sins. 

1Sa 15:22  And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. 

Paul refers to himself (his life and ministry) as being poured out like a drink offering to the 
service of YHVH while he was imprisoned (Philippians 2:17 and 2Timothy 4:6).

Now turn to and read Numbers 28:3. At the end of the 
verse, we read the following speaking about the twice 
daily sacrifices, “you shall be careful to offer to Me at 
their appointed time” (NKJV). The word “appointed time” 
in the Hebrew is “moed” and is a reference to anything 
that YHVH commands his people to do at a set and regular time. These are regular times when he wants to meet 
with his people. Examples of a moed would be the weekly 
Sabbath and YHVH’s annual sabbaths, such as Passover/
Unleavened Bread, Pentecost, Trumpets, Atonement, Tabernacles and the Eighth Day (Shemini Atzeret). So what is 
YHVH saying here? He is saying that the twice daily burnt 
offerings were appointed or set times when he chose to 
meet with his people.  (Wow, that is amazing to consider...that our time with Abba is appointed and actually commanded and we are doing His service as a living sacrifice when we fulfill that time with Him!!)
