Nehemiah 8:1–18 - Centred on the Word
When the Word of God is paramount and central to our lives, things bode well for us. Bibles that are falling apart are usually owned by people who aren’t. Nehemiah knew that the people didn’t just need a wall, they needed a re-centering on Gods Word. I wonder what place the Bible holds in our lives. Do we maintain a rhythm of having it appear throughout our day? If we open it daily looking for words to obey, we will find them every time.
We are spiritual beings and as such need the spiritual food of Gods Word. Man does not live on bread alone but on every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God.
Is your attitude towards money and generosity informed by the Word of God or human opinion?
What is God saying to you about your level of generosity and how is He leading you?
