At the start of the year, I shared a post called “A Simple Prayer,” which offered up a Bible verse that could easily be repurposed by us today when we pray. I came across another such verse in my recent biblical travels, and thought I’d mention it here:
If you’re not familiar with the story of Nehemiah and the rebuilding of the Jerusalem wall, I encourage you to read or listen to the book (I use the YouVersion Bible app) when you get a chance. It’s a remarkable story that I’ll summarize below, without giving away the plot, so to speak:
- Nehemiah was a godly man.
- Nehemiah was more concerned about the well-being of others than for his own comfort.
- Because of #1 and #2, Nehemiah recognized that God placed him into a job that would allow him to help others in need – but the choice was his.
