Listen to this morning’s Scripture Song – Psalm 55:17
Read the “0113 Evening and Morning“ devotion for today, by the late Charles Haddon Spurgeon.
Read a previous post from today’s reading – “Lead On Softly“
“And Dinah the daughter of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land.” (Genesis 34:1)
This sad story begins with a young girl Dinah, who comes to a new country and unwisely goes out to seek friends. Just a side note, some say she was between the ages of 12 and 16. This is an age where most young people try to leave the ‘nest’ to make their own life. The friends she sought were not of her own people. They were daughters of a pagan nation. While away from home in the world, she was raped by Shechem, son of Hamor the Canaanite, a ruler. Shechem then wanted to marry Dinah, but we learn that her brothers went on a killing spree.
It’s not much different today. Our young children are bombarded with all kinds of temptations. It’s everywhere. They are encouraged to rebel against the wishes of their parents. Parents get so frustrated that they give in as their children draw away from them and their family values. These young children, barely teens, enter a world they know nothing about.
Our Bible is the source we can go to, to study out what it says about family, so we can have a successful plan. It’s important to teach our children at a young age who to associate with. Also that even a simple decision can impact a life forever.
