Genesis 31-36

Selected Lectio Reading:
Genesis 31-36


When Dinah daughter of Jacob was raped by Shechem, the entire family felt the pain. Her brothers especially were enraged when they heard of this. They wanted to protect their sister from any of this, just like a brother would do. And so when Shechem and Shechem's servant asked for Dinah's hand in marriage, her brother were devious and made a deal with them. They could only have Dinah and the rest of the daughters if they were circumcised. So they agreed and all the males were circumcised. And when they were still hurting, the brothers came in and killed all the males and took the children and wives for themselves. They turned to the wrongful men and said, "'Should our sister be treated like a whore?'"


I am thankful for candy corn and gluten free crackers that taste like goldfish.

Oratio/Prayer Intention:

Oh God, please look after the women and men who have been victims of rape and their perpetrators be found. And that all the cows in the world are safe.
