Genesis 34:30 And Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, Ye have troubled me to make me to stink among the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanites and the Perizzites: and I being few in number, they shall gather themselves together against me, and slay me; and I shall be destroyed, I and my house.
Simeon and Levi habe made Jacob have a bad testimony in the land of Canaan. These people need to know God. They need to know the truth.
The brothers should have explained the gospel. They should have told these people who were far from God what to do to get close to God. Instead they plot their deaths.
So many times we have an opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ but in our selfishness we cause others to stumble. We cause others to have reason not to believe in or follow God.
I want to be careful with my testimony. I want to be careful in how I conduct my life so as not to cause any more trouble for the gospel than Satan is already causing. No need to add more wood to the fire!
