1 Chronicles 3:1-4:23; Ezekiel 5:1-6:14; John 1:1-18

Then Eliashib the high priest rose up with his brethren the
priests, and they builded the sheep gate…And next unto him
builded the men of Jericho. And next to them builded Zaccur the
son of Imri. Nehemiah 3:1-2

And next unto them the Tekoites repaired; but their nobles put
not their necks to the work of their Lord. Nehemiah 3:5

God is watching and keeping records. He knows who is labouring
faithfully, skillfully and joyfully for His kingdom. He is also
aware of those who are not giving their best. “Let us not be weary
in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not” (Gal. 6:9).
—D. Pickup

Work, for the night is coming, work thro’ the sunny noon;
Fill the brightest hours with labour, rest comes sure and soon.
