When Nehemiah learned that persistent disobedience had crept into the lives of the people, he did not hesitate to confront the offenders. Alistair Begg explains that just as we would take threats against our physical well-being seriously, God’s people need to take action against threats to our spiritual health. We must not allow unhelpful associations, unfulfilled commitments, unkept promises or unholy marriages to strangle our spiritual growth, and leaders must be more concerned with God’s glory than the favor of others.
10I also found out that the portions of the Levites had not been given to them, so that the Levites and the singers, who did the work, had fled each to his field.
