Good morning.

Reading through the book of Nehemiah one is struck by how a good leader with clarity of vision and steadfast focus on the call of God, inspires people to get behind his vision. People with different gifts and abilities pull together.

We see priests, family of noblemen and rulers, goldsmiths and perfume-makers, Levites and merchants, all buying into the vision and working as it were shoulder to shoulder.

This reminds us of what David says: "How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity ... For there the Lord bestows his blessing, even life forevermore." (Psalm 133:1‭, ‬3)

The challenge for each of us is to buy into the vision of our elders/leaders and blow wind into their sails. Together we will experience God's blessings.

“Then I will purify the lips of the peoples, that all of them may call on the name of the Lord and serve him shoulder to shoulder."

(Zephaniah 3:9)
