Wall Builders

   Labor day expresses gratitude and esteem to the workers of the country it is celebrated in, and acknowledges their hand in the prosperity, strength, and the success of that country. Tomorrow is Labor Day here in the USA and I wanted to share one of my favorite websites with you. The organization’s name is, Wall Builders. What is written below I took straight off of their website. I hope you will visit that site and be inspired to put what you find there to use in some way for our country. 

Happy Labor Day!

   “WallBuilders' goal is to exert a direct and positive influence in government, education, and the family by (1) educating the nation concerning the Godly foundation of our country; (2) providing information to federal, state, and local officials as they develop public policies which reflect Biblical values; and (3) encouraging Christians to be involved in the civic arena.”

  “Why the name, Wall Builders? In the Old Testament book of Nehemiah, the nation of Israel rallied together in a grassroots movement to help rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and thus restore stability, safety, and a promising future to that great city. We have chosen this historical concept of "rebuilding the walls" to represent allegorically the call for citizen involvement in rebuilding our nation's foundations. As Psalm 11:3 reminds us, ‘If the foundations be destroyed, what shall the righteous do?’”
