Today’s reading Nehemiah 12-13

Nehemiah 13:11 Then contended I with the rulers, and said, Why is the house of God forsaken? And I gathered them together, and set them in their place.

Nehemiah was dealing with people who had gotten their priorities out of whack. They had forgotten their God and forsaken His house. They were not taking care of the men of God. They were concerned about their homes and their lives but had lost all desire to care for the things of God.

I challenge all of us to be careful to see that the work of God is carried forth and blessed. God uses us to take care of His work. Our children need to see us serving God and honoring Him.
