21 So we labored at the work, and half of them held the spears from the break of dawn until the stars came out. 22 I also said to the people at that time, “Let every man and his servant pass the night within Jerusalem, that they may be a guard for us by night and may labor by day.” 23 So neither I nor my brothers nor my servants nor the men of the guard who followed me, none of us took off our clothes; each kept his weapon at his right hand.
When people opposed the plan of Nehemiah to rebuild the wall, Nehemiah had to think of a way for the work to resume. He made a simple plan that I believe we need to apply in our work and life integration.
BUILD AND FIGHT!
BUILD WITH YOUR LEFT AND FIGHT WITH YOUR RIGHT HAND.
We have to be reminded as working men that we are not just called to work and provide for our family. We are also called to protect and fight for our family. We don’t pick up a fight but when someone wants to mess our family, we know how to fight.
Single men, build your career but at the same time fight for integrity in the work place. Build your finances but fight for good management of money. Build your future family and fight for purity in our relationship.
Build and Fight!
