Serving Our Community And World In Christ's Name

Daily Devotional

Monday February 18, 2019
Genesis 45:4c-5 (NRSV) He said, "I am your brother, Joseph, whom you sold into Egypt. And now do not be distressed, or angry with yourselves, because you sold me here; for God sent me before you to preserve life.

Joseph the dreamer who had been sold into slavery by his jealous brothers is now speaking to them as a man of power and authority. Instead of being bitter and angry, Joseph speaks with love, compassion, and forgiveness from the perspective of the big picture of how God worked through him to preserve life. We can learn from Joseph to look for the larger patterns of God's grace and how our lives interact with others to bring renewed life!

Are you able to see the patterns of God's love in your life? Today will you seek to see the events in your through the persespective of God's loving action?

May Joseph be your guide today in forgiving others and seeing God's grace in action!
