I am doing a great work and cannot come down. – Nehemiah 6:3
Nehemiah was rebuilding the wall around Jerusalem and was constantly asked to come down to work on other things.
His answer was always the same “I am doing great work and cannot come down.”
The point of the story is that he didn’t allow any distractions from his goal. He knew that rebuilding the wall would be a symbol to the people and lead to bigger and better things and that is should be his priority.
As you look at your goals and resolutions for this year, think about what/which one should be your priority.
Some things in life are worth focusing on to the exclusion of others.
Figure out what your great work is for this year and don’t lose focus on it.
Be tenacious in pursuing it.
Don’t let anything distract you.
Make it a great weekend.
