With Jerusalem’s wall nearing completion, Sanballat and Tobiah were desperate, because their efforts to stop its construction were failing. So, they tried a new approach: They attacked Nehemiahʼs character using rumors, deceit, and false reports. Unjustified attacks hurt, and it is easy to despair. If this happens to you, follow Nehemiahʼs example: Trust God to accomplish the task and overlook the insults. Please open your Bible to Nehemiah chapter six, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola begins his study of this chapter.
