I wonder how our lives would change if we dared to lean in just a little closer and let the hand of the master restorer work.
Nehemiah led the people in truth and justice.
Justice looks like Jesus.
Today we are putting ourselves in the story to see what it reveals about ourselves, God, and the world as a whole.
Jesus wasn’t afraid to come down into the details of someone’s life to bring them hope and peace. So why can’t we do the same?

Trusting God is much easier to talk about than to actually do, but I encourage you to take a look at what your actions reveal about your view of God.
