And each of the builders
wore his sword at his side as he worked…

Nehemiah 4:18

Building for God with the necessary means of defence or attack ready to hand – a wise solution to a challenging problem in that day!
For believers in the Lord today, working for him in this world, we also need to be similarly prepared, with the sword of the Spirit – the Word of God! (Eph.6:17), readily at hand. These days that can literally be in our pockets, on our smartphones, easily available to encourage, inspire and direct us and others as opportunity or need arises!
