Christian Devotional – November 5, 2013


Nehemiah 3:8–Uzziel son of Harhaiah, one of the goldsmiths, repaired the next section; and Hananiah, one of the perfume-makers, made repairs next to that. They restored Jerusalem as far as the Broad Wall.


This chapter lists all those who worked on a section of the wall. There were lots of people from all different backgrounds and occupations, yet they were all united with the common goal and purpose to complete this project. When we are focused on God and on doing the work that He has for us, we find that we are unified with lots of people. Through God, we are unified and have purpose. We accomplish more and stay better unified than when we get distracted by petty differences. Are we focused on God and His goals or are we being distracted by other things? We can work together with others who are also focused on His goals.


Father, give me a goal. I will focus on it. I will not pre-judge others You bring into my life who are also focused on the same goal of serving You. You will keep me focused on You as we all work together to see Your will accomplished.
