I picked this video up from Justin Taylor’s blog. He was raving about it and I expect it will get reposted in lots of other places, if it isn’t already. Forty minutes that will not be wasted.
Nehemiah 3:14 Malchijah the son of Rechab, ruler of the district of Beth-haccherem, repaired the Dung Gate. He rebuilt it and set its doors, its bolts, and its bars.
Contrast this verse with verse 5 of the same chapter and ask yourself who you are more similar to, Malchijah or the nobles.
And next to them the Tekoites repaired, but their nobles would not stoop to serve their Lord.
