The influence of unbelievers

Nehemiah 13:26  “Wasn’t this exactly what led King Solomon of Israel into sin?” I demanded. “There was no king from any nation who could compare to him, and God loved him and made him king over all Israel. But even he was led into sin by his foreign wives.

Using Solomon as an example, Nehemiah spoke with the people explaining the influence of unbelievers.  If even King Solomon, who was known for his wisdom, could fall because of the influence of his pagan wives, anyone could.  We aren’t told to stay away from unbelievers.  We are warned against having deep relationships with unbelievers and inviting them into our inner circle of confidants and encouragers.  If we aren’t dealing with our weaknesses, our strengths won’t do us much good.  Likewise, if we don’t deal with our sin immediately, it will eventually bring us down.  By reading the Bible, we can learn from the mistakes of others.
