Away With NEGLECT!

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Nehemiah 10:39b

We will not neglect the house of our God.


After “The Wall” had been rebuilt by Nehemiah and his returning Jewish cohorts, Ezra the prophet read the law before the people of Israel. As he read, they began weeping and then repenting. Then they made a series of new commitments to the Lord. The last of these was that they would never again NEGLECT the house of the Lord.


Of course the people of Israel didn’t keep their promise for long. That’s not the point here. What is important is you and me. We have the chance to be different. I was raised by parents whose entire life was spent putting Jesus and His house FIRST! They made the decision to put the Lord’s house before their own house in importance. Because of that, they have an enduring legacy. Robyn and I have endeavored to follow our parents’ path. The Israelites realized their mistakes, and in getting a fresh start they said we’ll NOT NEGLECT the house of the Lord again! Why not join Robyn and me today and say once and for all … “Away With NEGLECT!”


Dear Jesus,

I’ll say it again … “You Are First!” Always. Amen
