To see or not to see

 Dinah chose to see the women of the land where Jacob, her father, had brought the family to settle. The problem arose when a disgraceful man named Shechem saw her first. Since Jacob did not choose to deal with the shame caused his daughter, her brothers took it on, by deceiving the young prince. In the end, there was bloodshed and loss for all. Dinah’s defilement meant her life would never be the same. In much the same way, our defilement by the world system prevents us from ever experiencing the life that God intended. The good news is that He is a father who does not ignore the shame caused by sin. He provides a way for wrongs to be made right. It does require consecrated hearts and a burial of all that keeps us from worshiping Him. (See ch. 35). – Teresa

Genesis 34: 1.2 (KJV)

1 “And Dinah the daughter of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land. 2 And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her.”
