Nehemiah 5:17 & 18
"Furthermore, a hundred and fifty Jews and officials ate at my table, as well as those who came to us from the surrounding nations. Each day one ox, six choice sheep and some poultry were prepared for me, and every ten days an abundant supply of wine of all kinds. In spite of all this, I never demanded the food allotted to the governor, because the demands were heavy on these people." NIV translation
Nehemiah is not bragging but he simply informs the rich people about what he was doing to help the poor. He gives a list of the animals and wine that he was having to pay for each day. He reminds them that, as the governor, he could have gotten it for free but instead was paying for it on his own because the people were already carrying a heavy burden. This is a good example for the leaders of our day who are Christians and have so much but see their brothers without food or shelter and do nothing.
