Bible commentary

Discussion for Exodus 16:36

  • Feeling that the Father asks us for 1 10 of our time to be devoted to Him in thanks and praise. 1 10 of our waking hours is practically one full day minus the time it takes to eat and attend to our personal needs. By doing this consistently, we learn how to live the rest of our time in the mindset of nurturing our relationship with Him, and wanting to please Him by our actions on a daily basis.
  • I'm thinking that this verse,"Now an omer is the tenth part of an ephan." Can this also be a correlation to our tithes offerings which is a tenth of our giving back to the Lord for blessing us too?
