The Fine Art of Insight

Artwork for Hand Me Another Brick: Timeless Lessons on Leadership

The spiritual revival led by Ezra at the Water Gate (Nehemiah 8:1-12) was just the beginning of the Israelites’ desire to remodel themselves before the Lord. In search of a solid foundation in the Law, they returned to Ezra, seeking insight—wisdom that could be built into their daily lives. They committed to clear away the rubble of wrong thinking and their old patterns of living, replacing them with obedience to the Lord and His Law. This biblical method for spiritual renovation is an excellent model for rebuilding our spiritual lives today.
