As the building project continues, it’s revealed that there’s injustice going on within the community: the rich oppressing the poor. Incensed at this internal sickness, Nehemiah takes measures to address the injustice and call for repentance…and his passionate confrontation is backed up by his personal example. When God calls us to build great things, he’s just as concerned about our internal health as our outward accomplishments. (A huge, multiplying church is worthless if it’s internally dysfunctional).
