Nehemiah: Everyone Has Something
Nehemiah chooses two faithful men to be in charge of Jerusalem. He gives them instructions to guard the gates. Nehemiah then finds the genealogies and takes a census of the people. The people give generously toward the completion of the city, despite not even having houses to live in.
We’re in Nehemiah 7.1-67 this week.
Everyone has something unique that they bring to the table.
- The Widow’s Gift (Mark 12.41-44)
- Jesus does not acknowledge those who gave much, but those who gave sacrificially.
- It is not how much you have. It’s how faithful you are with what you have.
- The Parable of the Talents (Matthew 25.31-46)
- Everyone does not have the same, but they have the same expectation.
- Everyone has not been given much, but everyone has been given something significant.
- Our investments reveal our hear for the Lord and others. (Matthew 25.31-46)
Sacrifice is the call: of the Savior, of the believer today, and of the people in Nehemiah’s day who didn’t even have a house and yet they gave.
- If there is no cost to you personally for your faith then there’s a good chance your faith-life is more defined by you than by your Savior.
- Keep an eye out for little opportunities to bless others you interact with on a day-to-day basis.
