Hi CLC parents!
The city of Jerusalem had been destroyed years earlier. The Jewish people were living as exiles in the land of Persia. Nehemiah, a cupbearer in the court of king Cyprus, dreamt of returning to the land and rebuilding the city wall of Jerusalem. Well, God made a way for it to happen. But rebuilding the wall proved to be no simple task. It was a massive wall that required a lot of time, resources, and laborers. To make matters worse, Nehemiah was constantly dealing with people who opposed his mission. He could not possibly have done it alone. He needed help.

We can’t do all that God has called us to on our own. We can’t build His kingdom on our way. We need each other. Spend time around other Christians this week. Think and pray about how you could work to make a greater impact together than you could apart.
