We also placed ourselves under obligation to contribute yearly one third of a shekel for the service of the house of our God.
Nehemiah 10:32 (ESV)
Although we are no longer obligated to give a strict 10% as a monetary gift as disciples in churches of God, we are still obligated to give to the Lord financially (1 Cor.16:1-2). 10% is a helpful guideline. It’s not that the Lord needs the money of course – but the ministries and maintenance of the churches do!
