‘Oldie-but a-Goodie’ Friday- Driver’s Permit!!

Hey Neighbor!

It’s March 11, 2022 and Today is Oldie-but a-Goodie Friday, where we resurrect an older CareBibleStudy Blog post and give it life!!

Today I have a Short and Sweet Treat for You. We originally posted this one in January of 2015.

It’s Pretty Funny- especially for Parents with Teens!!

Enjoy!!

*********************

Here’s a little light humor between a Christian Father and His Son!!

I found this on Bible.org

Here’s the story…

A young boy had just gotten his driving permit. He asked his father, who was a minister, if they could discuss the use of the car. His father took him to his study and said to him, “I’ll make a deal with you. You bring your grades up, study your Bible a little and get your hair cut and we’ll talk about it.”

After about a month the boy came back and again asked his father if they could discuss the use of the car. They again went to the father’s study where his father said, “Son, I’ve been real proud of you. You have brought your grades up, you’ve studied your Bible diligently, but you didn’t get your hair cut!” The young man waited a moment and replied, “You know Dad, I’ve been thinking about that. You know, Samson had long hair, Moses had long hair, Noah had long hair, and even Jesus had long hair….” To which his father replied, “Yes, and they walked every where they went!”

********************************
Cute- Huh??😉

Reminder: Tomorrow is Solution Saturday!!

I Will Solve the Riddle and Release the name for Our Trivia Thursday: ‘The King’s Daughter’

Until Then, Remember…

Bible Trivia Thursday- The King’s Daughter!!

HeyNeighbor!

It’s Trivia Thursday!! 

But first I have Your Answer to Our, impromptu Tuesday’s Trivia Question-Who’s That Lady?? 

**************************

She was the new girl in town, a new face in the land of Canaan. She was a chaste daughter of Jacob- a young virgin, who appeared to be traveling all alone when Shechem, the Hivite prince in the land, pounced upon the opportunity to come near to her, as there was no male with her to protect her, nor defend her. 

Her brothers were with the livestock in the fields. We’re not told of the whereabouts of her father, nor her mother Leah at the time. We only know that the young girl ventured out alone, probably without her parent’s permission, and at some point, Shechem, being stronger than young Dinah, forced himself upon her and defiled her. 

Yes! Rape did occur in the Bible. This was the first occurrence we learn of here in Genesis 34, but unfortunately it was not the last. 

A slightly similar ‘defiling’ moment would later affect Dinah’s distant niece- a descendant ‘daughter’ of Dinah’s brother, Judah- and a daughter to a king in Israel in 2 Samuel. 

Oddly, in this next story, it was not a stranger who raped the king’s daughter, but it was her brother, Amnon- who afterwards showed great disdain for his sister. After he had tricked her to come to his bedroom, he forced her to lay with him, then Amnon ‘hated’ her and threw her out! 

Now in contrast to Amnon, scripture tells Us in Genesis 34:3, that afterwards Shechem’s ‘soul longed for and clung to Dinah.’ He had fallen in love with this young girl, and wanted her to stay with him, as his princess and bride. 

Now this is by no means some fairy-tale love story!!

But it is a story of repentance! 

Shechem felt great sorrow and regret for the dreadful thing that he had done to Dinah. He was sorely ashamed and wanted to make things right because he truly loved this girl and now wanted to appeal to her wishes.  Scripture says, Shechem spoke to Dinah comfortingly, trying to calm her heart and mind because he knew that he had violated her and had caused her shame before her father and had made her a reproach before her brothers in the land. 

But What Must Be Done Now?? 

Shechem makes confession to his father, Hamor and asks his father to speak with Jacob and to beg for Dinah’s hand in marriage. When Jacob arrives to confront Hamor about the matter, scripture says that ‘Jacob held his peace’ until his sons had come. 

We can only assume that Jacob stood there, listening intently to Shechem and Hamor, while he pondered what can be done to right the wrongs at this point.  After all, Schechem, who had previously dishonored his daughter was now willing to do the most honorable thing by marrying Dinah, in attempts to make things right amongst the two families in the land. 

But unfortunately, Jacob stood silent for far too long-before his bloodthirsty sons arrived on the scene- already filled with anger and hatred; ready for war and vengeance! 

I will spill more tea on Jacob and his sons later- but for today-since it’s Thursday…..

Who was this King’s Daughter (mentioned above) who Amon (her brother) tricked and defiled and afterwards hated??

Grab Your Bible’s and get comfortable, because the book of Samuel reads better than any novel You can possibly buy!!

A Little ‘Sunday School’ Humor – LOL!!

-Allow the little ones to come to Me, and do not forbid or restrain or hinder them, for of such [as these] is the kingdom of heaven composed. And He put His hands upon them, and then went on His way-
(Matthew 19:13)

Hey Neighbor!

I wanted to Share This Sunday School Story with You that I read this Weekend.

It’s really cute…and it’s just another reason to bring the children to Sunday School.

Lol!!

Here’s The Story.

************************

Little Bobby was spending the weekend with his grandmother. His grandmother decided to take him to the park on Saturday morning. It had been snowing all night and everything was beautiful. His grandmother remarked…”doesn’t it look like an artist painted this scenery? Did you know God painted this just for you?”
Bobby said, “Yes, God did it and he did it left handed.”

This confused his grandmother a bit, and she asked him “What makes you say God did this with his left hand?”

“Well,” said Bobby, “We learned at Sunday School last week that Jesus sits on God’s right hand!”

…Too Funny!!

***************************

Thanks For Stopping By!!

I Hope You Enjoyed a Little Sunday laughter…I Sure Did!!

Until Next Time….Remember

Solution Saturday Answers- Whose Wife Is This??

Hey Neighbor!

I have Trivia Thursday Answers for you today because today is – Solution Saturday!! 

Obviously I’m an alliteration fan- Lol!! 💕💕

This week I wanted to give some of the wives in the Book of Genesis a little attention, and We did!!

But Today, I also have to give Our ’Faith-Full’ CareBibleStudy follower, and my Super Faith husband some attention!!

Dewitt!!👏👏👏☄️🤩🤩

Dewitt got all 6 Trivia questions correct- He also commented that #5- The Daughter of Shuah – was a really tough one!!

Thanks Hubby for Playing!!😘🥰

Ok- So We’ve all heard of the Patriarchs- Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob! But what about their wives?? 

Aside from Abraham’s wife, Sarah, I don’t think we’ve studied very much about the other wives in Genesis- Have You??

How many of these wives did you recognize??

Which one was the toughest for You??

Now, If you’ve been studying along with us, most of these were eazy-peazy, because we’ve been going on and on about Jacob and his FOUR wives in our Lessons on, ‘The Pit Before the Palace.’ – with still more to come!! 

You can always backtrack and play catch-up, if you like!! 

Our Question This Week was: 

Whose Wife is This??

Here are Your Answers:

Enjoy!!💕

***********************

  1. Rachel was the wife of Jacob. (Genesis 29:30)
  2. Asenath was the wife of Joseph(Genesis 41:45)
  3. Leah was the wife of Jacob. (Genesis 29:25)
  4. She falsely accused Joseph of rape- Her husband was Potiphar. (Genesis 39:14-15)
  5. She was the daughter of Shuah- Her husband was Judah. (Genesis 38:2)
  6. Dinah was the ‘wife’ of Shechem(Genesis 34:2-4)

I used ‘wife’ loosely here with #6. 

As Dinah and Shechem were betrothed and she was taken into his household to wed. 

There is so, so much more to Dinah and Shechem’s ‘love story.’  I will spill the tea on that soon enough- and be careful, cause the tea is Hot!!🥵

God’s ’Faith-full’ Daughter – Tamar!!

Hey Neighbor! 

Today is actually Oldie-but a-Goodie Friday, where we resurrect a CareBibleStudy blog of old, and give it life again- Lol!! But today I felt inspired to share more about our ’faith-full’ woman of the week – Tamar!!

Did you answer this weeks Super Faith Sunday Question correctly??

Our Question was- Who is She?? 

And our Answer was: Tamar!! (Judah’s daughter-in-law)

I posted the answer for you this week, along with a little background on our ‘faith-full’ Tamar, but I also promised your more….

If you need to play catch-up, here is Tuesday’s background Lesson:

If not- here’s more today about Tamar and Judah:

********************

Tamar had become impatient with her father-in law, Judah and behaved desperately, because he had rejected the union between herself and Judah’s youngest son, Shelah. 

When Onan, Tamar’s second husband died, Shelah was only a boy and could not yet be permitted to marry. So Judah sent Tamar away from his house, with only a promise of a future marriage to his last son, Shelah. 

You see, according to their custom, Shelah was now betrothed or promised to Tamar as her husband. Now when Shelah becomes a ’grownup,’ he is obligated to wed Tamar and give her a son- their first born son- in the name of his deceased older brother, Er, Tamar’s first husband.

I hope you got all that- It gets Tricky!!

But it seems that Judah feared that this woman was accursed!! 

In Judah’s eyes, he saw that each of his 2 sons, Er and Onan had died, suddenly and mysteriously, after having wed this woman. 

Judah did not want to see nor accept his own guilt in the matter – nor accept that his two sons had done evil in the sight of the Lord and therefore, God killed them both!!

Unfortunately Er and Onan were wicked, unrepentant men, as they were born to a wicked, unrepentant Judah, who had also shamelessly sold his younger brother, Joseph into Slavery. 

But God had clearly seen Judah’s sins, though he thought they were hidden- and scripture tells us that our God is Just and He visits the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations. (Deuteronomy 5:9)

Our God, who is Just, is also a merciful God Who restrained His wrath upon this Canaanite Woman, Tamar and upon Judah, who had conceived their twin boys together in lust and incest. 

Yes!! Judah and Tamar’s twin sons were born to a mother- who disguised herself, and pretended to be a hooker and a ‘john’ father, who had come along and solicited her favors!!

Now Judah did not know that his daughter-in-law, Tamar was the woman ‘dressed up’ as the prostitute when he slept with her. This is revealed later in the story when Tamar’s pregnancy becomes evident.

You see, Judah had purchased the woman’s (Tamar) favors with a pledge, (promise to pay) leaving the prostitute (his daughter-in-law) with his ring, bracelets, and staff in her hands temporarily, until he returned with payment. 

It was about three months later when Judah learned of Tamar’s (hidden) pregnancy, that he viciously accused her of whoredom and adultery against his son Shelah!! 

Judah, in his own self-righteousness, demanded that Tamar be brought out and burned for her sins- not stoned, as was customary – yet he still did not admit to his own sins!!

So Tamar was forced to produce the very same items that Judah had given to her, as a pledge, from the night that he laid with her saying;

-By the man, whose these are, am I with child: and she said, Discern, I pray thee, whose are these, the signet, and bracelets, and staff.

And Judah acknowledged them, and said, She hath been more righteous than I; because that I gave her not to Shelah my son. And he knew her again no more. (Genesis 38:25-26)

It wasn’t until Tamar brought forth the evidence of Judah’s sin against her, that he was finally forced to publicly declare his own guilt, confessing that Tamar had been more righteous than him!! 

You may say – Righteous?????

Yes!! The inspired scripture describes Tamar as righteous. 

Yes!! Tamar was a Canaanitess, an idol worshipping, pagan woman.  But somewhere in time, Tamar had chosen to believe in the God of Jacob-her husband’s grandfather, who was yet still alive. Maybe he shared their family history, causing Tamar to embrace the faith of her husband’s patriarchal ancestors, Abraham and Isaac – even when their wicked grandsons Er and Onan had refused to do so! 

Tamar learned that her first 2 husbands, Er and Onan were the great, great, grandsons of the Patriarch, Abraham who by faith, believed unto righteousness and was called a son of God. She believed that she too could be counted as a ‘faith-full’ daughter in God’s Promise of the coming Messiah through Abraham!! 

Tamar had diligently waited years for Shelah, to no avail. She had been so long ignored, closed up in her father’s house, dressed in her widow’s garments and utterly forgotten. But her Father (God) who she had chosen to hope in, He had not forgotten Tamar!!

He saw how Tamar had been callously mistreated while she lived in Judah’s household. He saw that she had been used, abused, and finally abandoned by Judah and his sons. But God also saw the beautiful transformation in Tamar’s heart!! 

Yes!! God remembered his daughter Tamar, not because she behaved so righteously, because she didn’t!! 

God remembered Tamar because she believed unto righteousness, by faith!!

God blessed her womb, filling it with – not 1, but 2 sons of Abraham. One Pharez, the other Zarah! 

It was Tamar’s son Pharez, her first born son, who would be counted as an ancestral ‘father’ in the genealogy of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Pharez was not a son born of his mother’s merit, for she was not chaste in her flesh, but he was a son gifted to Tamar through God’s Grace, because Tamar kept the Faith!!

Matthew 1:3-6)

How did you do with the Super Faith Sunday Challenge Question? 

I did receive 2 comments with Correct Answers!! 

Yay!!! 

One of them was from Eva N.👏👏👏. The other was from my Husband, Dewitt, but I suspect that he may have been peeking at the Teacher’s Answer Key. Lol! 

Just Kidding!! 

Good Job, Dewitt!!😘👏🥰

*********So Who was this ‘faith-full’ woman?? 

She was Tamar!!

***********

Were you able to figure it out also?? 

I have to admit, it was a little tricky!! 

Especially considering that many might say that it is debatable whether or not Tamar should be considered a woman of faith!! 

After All, she had several things working against her…

  • She was a Canaanite woman, born amongst her people-who openly practiced idolatry, adultery, and incest, etc., etc.,etc.
  • Her first Husband, Er dropped dead sometime after their wedding!
  • Her second husband, Onan also dropped dead after their wedding!! 
  • Her third husband Shelah, who she was betrothed to- He both rejected her and avoided her in public spaces!!

Also, many believed Tamar to be accursed, because of these unfortunate occurrences with the men in her life!! 

Tamar was also not a woman we would consider to be ‘chaste.’

  • She connived to sleep with her father-in-law by dressing up as a prostitute!! 
  • Then she showed up 3 months pregnant, when she should have been ‘sheltering-in place’ as a widow @ her father’s house.

Well…..Can You guess who was her Babies’ Daddy?? (She had twins!!)

Yep!! It was Judah, her Father-in-Law!! 

Yep!! That’s another one of Jacob’s Messy Sons!! 

Who knew all of this kind of carrying on was in the Bible?? 

Oh!! – It gets Spicy🌶 

Look at King David and Bathsheba! 

She was a married woman- and David slept with her and then killed her husband, so that he wouldn’t find out that David had gotten her pregnant!! 

But Guess What??

Bathsheba is also listed in the genealogy of Jesus!! 

Yes- she too is a Mother of the Messiah!! 

Say What?? 

1st there is Tamar! 

2nd is Rahab- another prostitute. 
3rd- Ruth, the Moabitess.

And then there was (4) Bathsheba- not listed specifically by name, but she was instead listed as, ‘The wife of Uriah’ because she was married!!

So God obviously saw something in Tamar that We, as mere mortals missed- Because He Counted Her Amongst the ‘Mothers Of Jesus!!’

Was God looking at Tamar’s Heart??

I believe so, because Scripture tells Us that God does not look upon the outward appearance, as mere mortals do. 

-But the Lord said to Samuel, Look not on his appearance or at the height of his stature, for I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees; for man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.  (1Samuel 16:)

I believe God saw Tamar’s heart and He stamped It Grade A+ Approved!! And although the wicked men in her life shunned her, God Loved and Accepted Tamar!!

Remember, in Genesis 38:6-10, Moses (the Writer) calls Tamar’s first 2 husbands wicked and God rejected them as His sons and slew them both. 

But notice that Tamar was not labeled as ‘wicked’ – nor was her life shortened by God!! 

In fact- this same writer will later in the story, call Tamar Righteous!! 

I can go on and on tonight, but instead I will ‘spill more of this tea’ on Judah and Tamar Tomorrow!! 

Until Next Time, Remember…
