Nehemiah 1-2

09.18.2010

Nehemiah is cupbearer to the king, and he tries not to let his emotional distress at the condition of Jerusalem affect his job.  Yet I found it interesting that Nehemiah’s emotions open up his witness to Artaxerxes.  Instead of finding his display of emotion pathetic or unprofessional, Art hears God’s will and allows himself to be used for God’s purposes.  Pretty good for a moment of weakness.
