Judah teaches us a very important lesson and that is sometimes in life you are going to be force to take a stand. Joseph was his father's beloved son by his love Rachel and Judah knew the love and affection that his father had for his brother Joseph. Judah also knew the great disdain his brothers had for Joseph because of the affection his father had for him. The hatred was so intense they wanted to kill Joseph but Judah took a stand! What's interesting is that even though he took a stand he still had evil intentions. Sometimes we do the same thing:
- We don't come to someone defense because we love them we do it because we don't like a particular situation or the particular person they are fighting against.
- We don't give God praise because we love Him we do it because we think that unlocks the blessings we so crave.
