February 2, Nehemiah 5:14-19 Boasting in humility, really?

Nemiah makes it clear that although the was entitled to a significant salary he did not take it. Whether you like him or not our current president is doing the same, as did a few before him, John F. Kennedy and Herbert Hoover also declined a salary. They realized that the burdens on the people were high enough and that they each had sufficient for themselves that a salary wasn't needed. The painful reality is that most carreer politicians have amassed more wealth than the average blue collar worker will earn in a lifetime. What Nehemiah did was simply the right thing to do, what a great example from a great leader.
