Read the Bible in a year chronologically by reading Matthew 2 today.
When Herod heard that the King of the Jews had been born, Herod wanted to know where He had been born. Herod did not wish to honor the new King, but to kill Him. He sought information from the Jewish leaders and teachers, “And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born” (Matthew 2:4). They gave him a biblical answer. He used that later to put to death all the boys under 2 years of age in Bethlehem and its districts.
The Jewish leaders did nothing wrong by giving him an answer. How could they know what that wicked man would do?
We have to answer people’s Bible questions, unless we know that they are going to use it for evil. I would guess that someone has already asked you a Bible-related question and used it for evil, although you were unaware of it.
Herod used the Bible information for evil, but God used it to fulfill prophecy. Likewise, someone may have perverted your words or used them in another ungodly way, but God can still use the situation for His glory.
