Change

March 11, 2016

“When Sanballat heard we were rebuilding the wall, he was very angry, even furious. He made fun of the Jewish people. He said to his friends and those with power in Samaria, ‘What are these weak Jews doing? Will they rebuild the wall? Will they offer sacrifices? Can they finish it in one day? Can they bring stones back to life from piles of trash and ashes?’

Tobiah the Ammonite, who was next to Sanballat, said, ‘If a fox climbed up on the stone wall they are building, it would break it down.’

But Sanballat, Tobiah, the Arabs, the Ammonites, and the people from Ashdod were very angry when they heard that the repairs to Jerusalem’s walls were continuing and that the holes in the wall were being closed. So they all made plans to come to Jerusalem and fight and stir up trouble. But we prayed to our God and appointed guards to watch for them day and night.”
Nehemiah 4:1-3, 7-9

Guess who got mad at the progress?  Bullies.  Wadda ya think it was also from panic because those bullies were losing the inhabitants of Jerusalem as their victims?  Just because others oppose the change of any kind (unhealthy or healthy) does not make that change a bad thing!  If it’s time for a change, go for it!
