Nehemiah got a look at a city that was vulnerable and in disrepair and he got passionate about doing something.
He approached a King and stood up against the naysayers for the sake of the cause.
The one thing that we seem to have abundance of in this world is the quantity of needs, and if we let it, we can become overwhelmed with it all. Jesus said there will be trouble in the world but not to fret because He has overcome it. We became dispensers of His overcoming peace when we died and were resurrected with Him.

You see the differences we have in focus is maybe one of the ways God partners with us to go into ALL THE WORLD! If we all went to the same place or focused on the same issue we’d over run and under execute the goals.
That said, it’s good to have like minded and hearted people close to you when you find something this powerful to pursue. We need to learn how to involve each other in ways that become unifying among the different giftings. For example, I need graphically intelligent people around me because I’m challenged in this area.
