In today’s (chronological) Bible reading… Nehemiah 1-4… we are introduced to Nehemiah and one of the best books on leadership ever written.
Nehemiah was an exceptional man. The Persians saw it, and he was made cupbearer to the king. He would distinguish himself as a skillful leader and administrator during the return of the exiles.
He was a man of prayer… and a man of plans.
He was driven by his love for God, for his people, and for his nation. That love affected everything he did… everything he was.
He gave everything he had and everything he was to God… and let God do the rest.
Maybe you should try that today…
