chronological day 17 :)

Please read Genesis 45:16-26, Genesis 46, and Genesis 47:1-27.  Come on back and let’s talk about a highlight or two!


Joseph’s brothers return to Egypt, and this is good news for everyone, not only Joseph. The Word says that Pharaoh and all his workers considered this good news as well.  This shows us again that Joseph had gained such favor with Pharaoh, and possibly even become friends.  Pharaoh and Joseph must have become closer on a personal level as well, he clearly knew his history and his desires when it came to his family from Canaan. Don’t we feel glad when our friends receive glad news?

When the brothers start the journey to collect their father Jacob and bring him back, Joseph gives them this advice:

“Take it easy on the journey; try to get along with each other” Genesis 45:24 MSG

Isn’t that nice advice for us today? Take it easy on the journey, and try to get along!

Many opportunities were given to Joseph to act vengeful to his siblings for having sold him off. From being a cared and lost as a young boy to a man who has it all, favor from Pharoah, favor from GOD and favor from his brothers and the people of Egypt. But instead of being hateful GOD blessed Joseph with a warm heart. Joseph used his blessing to give back to his brothers which included Food, housing and safety.

    Today’s takeaway….GOD sometimes has us take a few steps backwards and we take it to heart and get angry, Joseph used this time to refine his attitude. So when we get stuck in one spot of our lives don’t rush to get out of it, take the time to refine, think, meditate and talk to GOD so we can take the next right step. I am……
