A Great Man doing a Great Job for a Great God!

Nehemiah 6:1-4 (NKJV)

1    Now it happened when Sanballat, Tobiah, Geshem the Arab, and the rest of our enemies heard that I had rebuilt the wall, and that there were no breaks left in it (though at that time I had not hung the doors in the gates),

2    that Sanballat and Geshem sent to me, saying, “Come, let us meet together among the villages in the plain of Ono.” But they thought to do me harm.

3    So I sent messengers to them, saying, “I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down. Why should the work cease while I leave it and go down to you?”

4    But they sent me this message four times, and I answered them in the same manner.

Matthew 18:1-4 (NLT)

1 About that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven?”

2     Jesus called a little child to him and put the child among them. 

3     Then he said, “I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven. 

4     So anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.
