Nehemiah’s Character

Nehemiah is an ancient character whose work ethic and service translate easily into today’ world.

He was emotionally vulnerable and honest with the king. As a result, he received royal support to help rebuild Jerusalem’s wall.

He was a shrewd communicator and refused to be pulled into false arguments by his enemies. This allowed the people to focus on fixing their homes.

Finally, Nehemiah had high standards for himself and his followers. He cleaned up the mess left in his hometown. It reminds me of the steps being taken today to clean up the corruption in Albany.

I pray that New York State has leaders who can work as effectively as Nehemiah to clean up our huge messes “in fifty-two days” (Nehemiah 6:15b).
