Nehemiah // Relationships
1. Sources of the Conflict (Nehemiah 5:1-5)
A. Lack of sensitivity to the needs of others.
B. Lack of seriousness about what God says.
Yet, exposure of the problem is not a bad thing.
Don’t be afraid of the pressure points that bring exposure to the problems in our relationships. This brings opportunity to deal with them.
2. Solution to the Conflict (Nehemiah 5:6-13)
A. Think before you act — “I took counsel with myself.” (Nehemiah 5:6-7)
B. Identify and communicate the source of conflict clearly (Nehemiah 5:7-8)
C. Point to the standard (Nehemiah 5:9)
