Half-way Point

in Christian Living/Situational Sin/Temptation

Here's today's Bible Minute with David Chadwick.

When Nehemiah was building the walls around Jerusalem, interestingly we see in the book that halfway through the enterprise, the people became very discouraged. I think that's an insight all of us need to have today.

Whenever we're halfway through a project, we are prone to get depressed and discouraged. Just remember that the halfway point is always the point when you're challenged to keep moving forward. So if you're at the halfway point of any project today, remember that's the greatest time of the temptation to quit.

Keep moving forward. Don't give up and when you burst through that halfway point, you then get a great new amount of energy. You'll keep moving forward and the project gets smaller and smaller until ultimate completion.
