Passage: Nehemiah 13:15-22
1. Both the Israelites and the men from Tyre did not respect the Sabbath day. What do you think tempted the Israelites to disregard God’s commandment?
2. Even when Nehemiah ordered the gates to be closed, the merchants waited by the wall until Nehemiah threaten to hurt them if they do not leave. What does this say about the amount of determinedness needed for practicing a God-honoring life?
