“And Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the land of Egypt and in the land of Canaan, for the grain which they bought; and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh’s house.”
Be a faithful steward of the responsibility and the power given to you. What you are today is because of a trust released to your care. You are where you are because God has shown you favor and elevated you to this present position. Don’t use this as a platform for personal enrichment, personal fame or personal elevation of any sort.
Joseph was a faithful steward. All the monies he gathered from the execution of Pharaoh’s commission, he brought back to the house of Pharaoh. Nothing for his house but all brought under the authority and control of Pharaoh.
“O Lord, help me to bring everything to You. It is You who have entrusted me with such opportunities that allow me to enter into the limelight and prominence. For this reason, I will direct all my heart and attention to You. Lord, it has to be You who get all the glory and praise. Amen.”
