“Now Dinah the daughter of Leah, whom she borne to Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land. And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her and lay with her, and violated her.” Genesis 34:1-2
We need to be careful about being part of the pagan ungodly culture we live around today! Dinah here is trying to fit in with the ladies of the land and it goes bad!
“If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.” John 15:19
Realize if your trying to fit in with worldly people and its not working out, its because you belong to the LORD and you need to be separated from the world. We need to work, go to school and deal with the world, but we don’t need to try and fit in! The best way to keep from sliding into worldliness is to be in the word!
“Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You.” Psalm 119:11
Today be careful of the world and its traps what God calls SIN, the world calls being in the “in group.” If you feel like you don’t belong in the world good, remember you do belong to the LORD! Have a blessed day in Him
