Nehemiah Devotions Chapter 3, Day 3

Wednesday Everybody did their part

Text: Read verses 3-15 and note the different groups and gates.

WP Neh 3-3 stone soup

When I was a child I heard Captain Kangaroo read the book, “Stone Soup.” The story became one of my favorites. The message of working together became an integral part of who I am. Nothing gets accomplished when we hoard what we have. Progress is made when we add what we have and who we are to the mix.

Reading through today’s scripture I see this happening.

But not only are the people mentioned building, they are joining. They are working with each other and they are making sure their portions are connecting.

WP Neh 3-3 gift

Today let’s consider what gifts God has given us and how we will share it.

And in case you doubt you have one, Peter assures us that’s not true: God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. (1Peter 4:10, NLT)
