I gave my brother Hanani and Hananiah the governor of the castle charge over Jerusalem, for he was a more faithful and God-fearing man than many.
Two men, proven in their integrity and the depth of their faith, appointed to manage the affairs of the restored Jerusalem. Their past demonstrated their ability to advance the task of returning the Jews from exile.
One of the lessons to me is to be diligent in the small things before I step forward seeking more responsibility.
