When Nehemiah journeyed to Jerusalem to rebuild the wall, he faced the immense task of inspiring those around him to pick up bricks and begin a grueling project. Some were young novices with soft, callous-free hands. Others were old and accustomed to living without the wall—perhaps lethargic and disinterested. They all came from different walks of life with diverse expectations. The sands of time had smothered much of the patriotic zeal that had once burned in the hearts of the Jews. It's easy to see that motivating them was one of Nehemiah's first challenges of leadership. Through Nehemiah's example, we can learn how to motivate people to “get off dead center” and to rise up and begin a massive project.
