Nehemiah 3-4 (The Daily Walk Bible).

We have an opportunity to make our own legacy, both with those around us and with God. At the end of Ezra we find a “Hall of Shame,” but here we find a “Hall of Heroes.” God was paying attention to who was doing His work, and the people who built the wall were recorded in His Word. Now that’s a legacy!

We also see here that God’s people have a long history of being mocked and threatened. When we find that happening to us we should take to heart what we read here. Mocking shouldn’t affect us: we should remain steadfast in our work! We also are taught that we can defend and help God’s people who are being threatened: perhaps through physical action, possibly through political action, but certainly through prayer!
