Giving <=> Thanks

Drawing from Nehemiah’s directions to rededicate the temple in Jerusalem and restore sacrificial acts in Israel, this message moves outside of ourselves and our own thankfulness to God and into how thankfulness should spill out on others. The challenge for Nehemiah and for us is how to give thanks in the midst of the ruins. Key text: Nehemiah 12:27-31, 38-40, 43-47 (ESV)
