Nehemiah 3:12 - A task for all

Rebuilding the wall for God’s glory was an honourable task. I can imagine their pride as they joined together to make repairs, working from sunrise to sunset. This task of rebuilding the walls was traditionally reserved for men, their sons and workers. But Shallum, leader of half the district of Jerusalem, laboured alongside his daughters in rebuilding his part of the wall. Imagine the joy they would have felt to be a part of building something so significant. Throughout history, God continues to use the unlikely for his plans. 

Who do you know that is on the outside looking in?  Who could you invite to join you in the honourable task of serving God’s church?
