Joseph shared many gifts. Of all his talents of intelligence, interpersonal skills, hard work, and determination, I admire most the character of his integrity. When all around him are cheating, cutting corners, seeking self gain, Joseph is able to see the bigger picture. I believe this contributes to his ability to interpret Pharaoh’s dreams.
We all go through seasons of abundance and seasons of drought. Joseph is able to see a vision of what things can be and has earned the respect of even Pharaoh to have a voice. Knowing that we too journey through peaks and valleys, how do we as a community live into the vision God has for us? How do we prepare so that the gifts we store are generously shared?
Day 20 and still going. Let’s keep walking.
