When you commit to teaching your way through a book of the Bible, these are the days you know will come. There are the stories or the commands that make us squirm a little. The story we have to look at this week is one of those stories. There is nothing pleasant about the story and there are really no bright spots. No shining examples of faithfulness to God in these people. But God is faithful despite the actions of all the men involved. First, we will see Jacob’s inaction as Dinah is taken and Jacob holds his peace. Then we find a marriage proposal from Shechem and a counterproposal from Jacob’s sons. Finally, we find just a multiplication of sins as the story concludes and the evil heart of man is exposed.
