"They which builded on the wall, and they that bare burdens, with those that laded, every one with one of his hands wrought in the work, and with the other hand held a weapon. For the builders, every one had his sword girded by his side, and so builded. And he that sounded the trumpet was by me." - Nehemiah 4:17-18
The children of Israel had their tools in one hand and their weapons in the other. So many times I get so busy in the Lord's work, I let down my guard towards the Enemy, or I get so busy fighting the enemy I neglect the Lord's work. Am I prepared, by God's strength and through His might, to work for the Lord AND be able to fight against the Enemy?
