Nehemiah 12: Important Work
"If a job is worth doing, it is worth doing well!" I would like to have a dollar for every time I heard that growing up. I don't think that I understood the saying nearly as well as I do after years of working on it. Integrity and respect come to those who do a good job. We recognize excellence when we see it, and we are offended by a job half-done. We would be of much better use to God, others and ourselves if we didn't volunteer for everything that came along, but rather did a better job on the things we can realistically complete. If I do my part faithfully, God will do the rest in building his kingdom.
