One of Satan’s strategies against the people of God is to infiltrate and divide us from within. He can use race, gender, and politics, and he has but one of his favorite ways to divide people is economically; the Rich vs. the Poor. This is what is happening in Nehemiah 5. And it not only stops progress not the wall, but threatens to destroy what the wall is intended to protect – the people of God. Nehemiah steps in and calls those who are in positions of power to stop exploiting the people, but to restore to them, not only the material wealth they have been taking, but more importantly their equal status as people of God. We need to do the same.
