Nehemiah Part XXIX - What's at the Center?
How will our lives be remembered? What will be at the center of the memories? The tales? The stories? It is this question that I would like you to consider as we conclude our study of Nehemiah. Nehemiah is dead. He passed away some 2500 years ago. But the lessons of his life continue to reverberate through history – and the lessons of your life will reverberate as well. Not only will they be remembered by those close to you and felt in the lives of your children and grandchildren, but they will be displayed for all eternity when the Book of Life is opened and the Ancient of Days reads your name. So what will be the tale that is told? What is at the center of your life? And is that what you want?
