Prayer in Action, Day 26

A man of integrity. As Nehemiah is continuing to move forward, we see him choose leaders, men with integrity. Read Nehemiah 7:1-3.

Who do we choose to be leaders? Do we automatically put ourselves in leadership positions thinking we are the best? I find it interesting that Nehemiah didn’t choose himself for a position of leadership. He chose another person and that person was someone that he deemed as having integrity.

Do we have integrity? Do we understand what it takes to lead and do we recognize those qualities and other people around us? We must be willing to recognize that we may not always be the best fit. And, while we need to be people of integrity ourselves, we also need to recognize others that have integrity around us. How can we see the integrity in others today?
