Emulate Nehemiah for our common good!

As a subscriber to BAR Online for free, I usually get the latest update on archaeology. This morning I got another one. It’s about Nehemiah. Most of us knew who Nehemiah was. I just want to share Nehemiah’s story, which can be found in the Old Testament. Read the following:

17Then I said to them, “You see the trouble we are in, how Jerusalem lies in ruins with its gates burnt. Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, so that we may no longer suffer disgrace.18I told them that the hand of my God had been gracious upon me, and also the words that the king had spoken to me. Then they said, “Let us start building!” So they committed themselves to the common good. 19But when Sanballat the Horonite and Tobiah the Ammonite official, and Geshem the Arab heard of it, they mocked and ridiculed us, saying, “What is this that you are doing? Are you rebelling against the king?20Then I replied to them, “The God of heaven is the one who will give us success, and we his servants are going to start building; but you have no share or claim or historic right in Jerusalem.

(Nehemiah 2: 17 – 20 (You’re advised to read the attached commentaries); the above text was verbatimed from BAR Online)

Can you grasp the moral of today’s story?
