Via Bill Streger:
If Satan can’t make us fall through sin, he’ll sidetrack us through diversion and anger. I speak as chief of hypocrites on this one. I am reminded of Nehemiah where he and his men were building the wall and labored with a sword in one hand and trowel in the other. Their critics gathered around and tried to coax them down off their ladders for years of debate and fighting. But, he told his men to remain atop their ladders and keep working and to only fight if someone came up the ladder and got in the way of their work. We need to do likewise.
