My Dear Children, People will disagree with you all your life. What to do? Nehemiah did not answer the fools, he took their inappropriate comments straight to God in prayer. Nehemiah 4:14. Let us remember our God. Our God will fight for us. He will fight for our families. God hears those people who have slighted you. May your good work go on well like this wall that Nehemiah builds. The people had a mind to work like Luke and Barrett and Britt. When the insults and gibes happen, may it quicken us to our duty not drive us away. I am at fault, at sin, for even trying to read the faces of those who slight me. Let's turn to God and listen to His Words.

Dear Kids, Prayer must be our first resort, not the last resort. Nehemiah 1:6-11 - God, "let your ear be attentive and your eyes open to hear the prayer your servant is praying before you day and night." And Nehemiah confesses his sins, his children's sins, and his community's sins. God, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of your servant who delights in revering your name. Grant us favor, O God. Because of Who you are! So many promises we read in your Word. May they "read" us. And may we fling them back to You like arrows to heaven. Have mercy on us all.
