Daily Verses : Genesis 39:1-23.
Key Verse : Genesis 39:2a: “The Lord was with Joseph, and he was a successful man;”
Joseph’s story tells us how he lived his life as a slave and then became a convict. Joseph was someone who had a servant’s heart because even when he was degraded, he did not become angry or rebel. Joseph faithfully did every task that was given to him, both in Potiphar’s house and the prison. Because of this attitude and correct action, the Lord was always with Joseph and made him successful in everything he did. In God’s time, Joseph’s life changed drastically; from someone who was a convict, he became second-in-command across Egypt. As God’s children, we must always have the character of a servant. A servant would not maintain his own will, but willing to follow His master’s command. Having an obedient heart, willing to be teachable and submissive are signs of humility. Let us correct ourselves: are we obedient to the Lord? Are we obedient to our leaders? Are wives submissive to the husbands, and children to parents?
Obedience to the Lord is more important than a sacrifice.
