We are concluding the last of the seven â€ťwoeâ€ť statements that Jesus made, and it is probably the sharpest of all seven. In this warning and damnation, Jesus minces no words. He confronts with full force the religious hypocrisyâ€”not only in its leadersâ€”but also in the followers themselves.
The people in Nehemiah 10 werenâ€™t rich, they were poor. They didnâ€™t have a lot of free time, many hadnâ€™t had a chance to rebuild their own house. They werenâ€™t super-religious, they were just serious about following their God. How about you? Are you serious? How does it show in your life?
