Written in the Word was the detail of how the people were to “set under booths” during the feast.

The generation of people that were listening to Ezra expound on this scripture were unaware of this…until now.

So the people were faced with a decision: were they going to put forth effort and build booths or were they going to push it to the side, saying that it didn’t apply to them.

They chose to build the booths.

In their obedience they found “great gladness”.

That same gladness is available to us when we choose obedience to God’s plan.

Nehemiah 8:13-17
