Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Genesis 33:17 - 34:31)
“A Lamb Among Wolves”
Text: Genesis 34:1
“Now Dinah the daughter of Leah, whom she had borne to Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land.”
“A Lamb Among Wolves,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
The “Dinah Incident,” is a textbook model of the failure of parental spiritual and moral responsibility.
Jacob has not taken his family back to Bethel as God told him to (Gen.28:15), but settled them instead in the Canaanite city of Shechem. The Canaanite culture was extremely wicked. Unaccompanied girls as young as Dinah were routinely raped and taken as a wife.
Dinah went out to see the daughters of the land as “A Lamb Among Wolves,” and Jacob and his son’s were responsible
Here’s our lesson from this tragedy:
“Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.”(Prov.22:6).
Part of the “training,” of our
children is for you and I to teach and model a righteous lifestyle in the fear and honor of God. When we do this God will cause our children to obey and follow our model.
This is the way we take care of new believers as Lambs among Wolves; we teach and model a righteous lifestyle in the fear and honor of God.
As we do this with our “young children,” they will grow up as Disciples and Warriors of God, and no longer be Lambs they’ll be Sheep!
Jesus told His Disciples:
“Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.”(Matt.10:16).
Our Commander Jesus Christ sends you and I out into the harvest field of this world as “Sheep” Among Wolves with our Commander and Perfect Shepherd Leading You and I Triumphantly through Life! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
