Renungan harian alkitab, Nehemiah 10, kamis ; ‘first fruit -persembahan sulung’

Nehemiah 10:5, 35-37 (NKJV)  Harim, Meremoth, Obadiah, And we made ordinances to bring the firstfruits of our ground and the firstfruits of all fruit of all trees, year by year, to the house of the Lord;

to bring the firstborn of our sons and our cattle, as it is written in the Law, and the firstborn of our herds and our flocks, to the house of our God, to the priests who minister in the house of our God;

to bring the firstfruits of our dough, our offerings, the fruit from all kinds of trees, the new wine and oil, to the priests, to the storerooms of the house of our God; and to bring the tithes of our land to the Levites, for the Levites should receive the tithes in all our farming communities.

Umat Israel pada jaman Nehemia memang sudah sungguh bertobat, mereka hidup sungguh sungguh taat perintah Tuhan, buktinya adalah mereka benar akan hal persembahan dan perpuluhan, sungguh benar firman Tuhan katakan bahwa dimana hatimu disitulah hartamu berada,

Para pembaca terkasih, hati umat sungguh tertuju pada Tuhan,  mereka dengan sukacita memberikan persembahan sulung di awal Tahun,  memang iman adalah perbuatan,  karena iman mereka akan Tuhan pemberi berkat dan sumber segalanya  merekapun  bertindak dengan sukacita.

Bagaimana dengan kita? Apakah kita juga jujur dan benar hal persembahan dan perpuluhan?
