Examining the lukewarm, pretense of religion in Nehemiah’s latter day, we see an irreverent religious culture that saw no problem with giving God the leftovers and scraps instead of the best they had. The irreverent generation of that day closely resembles Christianity in our time as well. We need to be fervent to give God the very best we have in worship and in every area of our lives, to do everything heartily as unto the Lord.
