We start a new series this morning in the book of Nehemiah called, Building People. Nehemiah begins writing as the people of God are leaving exile in Babylon and returning to Jerusalem. The city is destroyed, but far more has been lost than walls and sacred spaces. The people of God have forgotten their first love. In God's infinite wisdom he uses Nehemiah to unite the people in rebuilding the city, but the true purpose is rebuilding the hearts of God's people.
Our series starts looking before the exile in Leviticus 26 were the people of God are warned of the blessings and curses that accompany God's covenant with man.
