Jesse Tree - December 15, 2020 - Day 17
Tuesday, December 15
But remember the admonition which you addressed to Moses, your servant, when you said: If you prove
faithless, I will scatter you among the peoples; but if you return to me and carefully keep my
commandments, even though your outcasts have been driven to the farthest corner of the world, I will
gather them from there, and bring them back to the place I have chosen as the dwelling place for my name.
The prophet Nehemiah urges the chosen people to change their ways and return
to the true faith. On the ornament for today, we see a wall reminding us of the
wall that was rebuilt around Jerusalem in order to keep the Sabbath Day a holy
day of rest. Read more about it in Nehemiah 1:1-2:8; 6:15-16; 13:10-22.
