Today we read the fourth chapter of the Apostle Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians and three chapters of Nehemiah.
2 Corinthians 4. Believers are treasures in jars of clay to proclaim the light of Christ’s gospel. They may be cast down but still unconquered “We believe and therefore speak” “we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” Read this chapter carefully with thought.
Nehemiah 4. Through strong opposition the building of the wall was defended.
Nehemiah 5, Nehemiah encountered oppression but showed great generosity.
Nehemiah 6, There arose a conspiracy against Nehemiah, but he was on to them and managed to get the wall completed.
