A beautiful, encouraging post at Generation Cedar. Kelly is reading Nehemiah and drawing comparisons and highlighting the importance of Christian families and the role they played in rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem. Moreover, pondering the role of family after the election.

In Nehemiah’s day the family rebuilt the wall around Jerusalem while fighting the enemies of the Jews. I wonder what “wall” we will be lead to build after the election?

If McCain wins, I can forsee rebuilding the constitutional and freedom walls that are decaying. If Obama wins, I sense there will be a different wall . . .

Nonetheless, God promises His provision for His People and we have no excuse to not be joyful in the midst of the turbulence.

This is our time to shine, to stand separate from the culture and speak of where we place our hope. Don’t miss the opportunity to share this FREEDOM in Christ.
