    Nehemiah Part 5 – Trouble Inside the Walls
    Series: Nehemiah
    Nehemiah 5, Ephesians 4:26, Psalm 4:4, and Galatians 1:10
     
    In Chapter 5 we see a problem revealed within the walls of the city (vs. 1-5), Nehemiah confronts this problem head on and finds a solution (vs 6-13), and concludes by showing how he chose to lead by example(vs. 14-19).  
     
    This passage is a great reminder to not sin in our anger, but to take the time to calm down and find a solution that will give God the glory.

    Opposition will drive you somewhere. When we let it drive us away from God we become discouraged in our faith and distracted in our walk. When we let it drive us closer to God we can grow deeper in our faith and more determined in our walk.
