The Daily Nosh – Nehemiah 13:25b-26
I made them swear by God saying, “You shall not give your daughters to their sons or take their daughters for your sons – or for yourselves. Didn’t Solomon king of Israel sin about these things (intermarrying with idol-worshipping nations)? Yet among many nations, there was never any king like him. Yes, he was beloved by his God, and God made him king over all Israel.” (TLV) Nehemiah 13:25b-26
Nosh: Even the most devoted and beloved of God can fall into the harmful consequences of compromise with sin if partnered with those who do not share Godly values as revealed in Scripture. Without exception, we are all vulnerable. The wise among us have learned to simply avoid these destructive partnerships.
