The Daily Nosh – Ezra 8:28-29

(28) Then I said to them, “You are holy to the Lord and the vessels are holy. The silver and the gold are a freewill offering to the Lord, the God of your fathers. (29) Guard them carefully until you weigh them before the leading priests and the Levites and the leading patriarchs of Israel in Jerusalem, in the storerooms of the House of the Lord.”

Nosh: Money that is contributed to God’s work and ministry must be treated and handled with utmost respect. God considers contributed resources as holy. To treat what has been reserved for the Lord and His work carelessly is to insult the Creator and invite His discipline and judgment into our lives. It is an understatement to say that this is self-destructive and unwise behavior.
