Don’t wait for someone else to do what needs to be done.
In our first week, we start at the beginning of Nehemiah’s story in Nehemiah 1:1–2:18. We discover that Nehemiah was working for King Artaxerxes when his brother brought news from the exiles living in Judah. When he heard about the devastation in Jerusalem, Nehemiah was heartbroken. He recognized the vast need, but before he did anything, he prayed. Nehemiah knew that whatever he would do, he’d need God’s help to accomplish it.
When kids see something that needs to be done, they might think that someone else will take care of it. But what would happen if our kids saw they could be part of the job? We want kids to realize that when they know what needs to be done, God might be telling them they can be the one to do it. And if they can’t do it all on their own, they can ask someone they trust for help.
