Right In Front of Us

Above the Horse Gate, the priests repaired the wall. Each one repaired the section immediately across from his own house.  Nehemiah 3:28 (NLT)

When Nehemiah was assigned the task of rebuilding the wall around Jerusalem, he assigned each person to rebuild the wall directly in front of their own house. Each person was responsible for what was right in front of their own eyes. No one had to worry about all the other things going on.  Sometimes, we get so caught up in what is happening everywhere else that we lose sight of what God has put in front of us. The task may be as small as being kind to our neighbor or as large as overseeing a multi-national project. To God, the small tasks are just as important as the large. Whatever God has placed before you, put everything you have into it. If God is calling you to it, it is important.

Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might. Ecclesiastes 9:10 (ESV)
