This Week's Study Passage

i have this thing about "common" bible passages...i've heard them preached alot...i've read them myself a bunch of times...they are "old hat" or something.

but i forget...

1. that might not be so with other people
2. there's a reason those verses are preached alot: they are good!

so any way, i was picking out this week's from Nehemiah and what else could i pick?

Nehemiah 8:9-10 (TLB)
9 All the people began sobbing when they heard the commands of the law. Then Ezra the priest, and I as governor, and the Levites who were assisting me said to them, "Don't cry on such a day as this! For today is a sacred day before the Lord your God-- 10 it is a time to celebrate with a hearty meal and to send presents to those in need, for the joy of the Lord is your strength. You must not be dejected and sad!"
