Nehemiah 3 today.
It was time to repair the broken down walls.
The people get to work.
I enjoy seeing everyone working together.
Side by side. Carrying their load.
I love what William MacDonald says about this:
Men and women, artisans and laborers, princes and commoners, all labored side by side. There was only one case of disunity—the nobles of Tekoa shirked their responsibility (v. 5). Some who finished their assigned task took on an additional portion of the wall (cf. vv. 4 and 21; 5 and 27). God has given different work assignments to believers today. He has equipped us with various gifts and abilities appropriate to our calling, and He knows who is not really involved and who is doing double duty. "Each one's work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one's work, of what sort it is" (1 Corinthians 3:13).
Today is a good day to get to work for the Lord!
Go, labor on: spend, and be spent,
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
