Courageous Confrontation

Nehemiah 13:1-9 — After completing the wall Nehemiah was required to report back to the Persian king. When he returned to Jerusalem he discovered that the High Priest had entered into an alliance with a man who had opposed the rebuilding work, and that man was now living in the Temple! Nehemiah was sorely grieved by this situation and he took action.

In this lesson we think about how Nehemiah responded to this sinful compromise. As we do, we learn some valuable lessons about our responsibility to lovingly confront others about their sin.
