Nehemiah 10:35–We also assume responsibility for bringing to the house of the Lord each year the firstfruits of our crops and of every fruit tree.
As the people dedicated themselves to the Lord, they recommitted themselves to the various commands that God had given them. In this case, the people were also agreeing to bring of their possessions a tithe to God. They knew that God owned everything and as such they were responsible to return a portion of it back to Him. Do we treat our things as if God owns them or as if we own them? Do we return the first of our earnings back to Him?
Father, I will continue to return the first of Your blessings to me back to You. I praise You for the fact that You own everything. Thank You for allowing me to watch over Your blessings. I pray You will use what I return to You for Your glory today.
