Nehemiah 13: Principles of Separation

Published

on

I was not in Jerusalem. The absence of Nehemiah revealed the unfaithfulness of Israel’s spiritual leadership. Eliashib, the high priest, broke God’s Principles and allied himself with Tobiah, an enemy of Israel, through family ties (v. 4). In this alliance, Eliashib prepared a sumptuous room in the Temple for the Ammonite, right next to the Treasury, where the offerings were kept.

As the King entered the city, everyone offered their best to honor him.

Genesis 20: Abraham and Abimelech

Published

She is my sister. In a moment of weakness and fear, Abraham did not reveal that Sarah was his wife. By doing this, he not only put her at risk, but God’s entire project for humankind. With Abraham and Sarah, the Lord intended to create a people, through whom the Savior would be born.

Because of this, He did not allow Abimelech to touch her.

This teaches us to always have the courage to tell the truth, even when we could be adversely affected by people’s reaction.

“White lies” and “half-truths” will cause damage. This is why our response should be a clear yes or no.
