Leadership – “Don’t tell me what to do, show me how to live.”
Scripture: Nehemiah 3:1-32

What an incredible testimony to the commitment of the vision. When Eliashib the High Priest set the example and started building his part of the city, it’s almost like a tidal wave of gifts and effort ensued. Everyone was busy, and the priests were leading by example. “Don’t tell me what to do, show me how to live!” The priests could have easily sat back and let everyone else work while they did the “spiritual work.” But they didn’t. Leadership is about putting forth an incredible effort and influencing those around us with all our energy and impact to achieve a common goal. Lord, may you give our church the great pleasure of accomplishing your vision together.

The more you love others, the more you leave your pride. There is no place for pride when working on a high performance team. The people are pulling together to rebuild the wall amidst the opposition, and they are learning how to be absolutely unified. In order to strive for unity we must rely on the power of God, remain alert, and rally to the needs of others.
