The possuk states "ViNasnu Ish Kofer Nafsho - And each man shall give..."

Why does it say here "ViNasnu - You shall give" when earlier in Parshas Terumah it says "Viyikchu - You shall take"?

The vilna Gaon says that the word V'NASNU spelt vov, nun, sof, nun, vov can be read forwards and backwards. This is also telling us that one who gives charity (forward) is actually on the receiving end (backwards).
