Re:Verse readingGenesis 37:14-28, 50:15-21 (day six)

I’m sure Joseph had his down days, but on the whole it seemed that he always was a blessing to others. It didn’t even matter who they were, baker, governor, or pharaoh; he blessed them all. This is remarkable given his circumstances. He never allowed his hard circumstances to dictate his behavior or how he treated others, and people took notice.

Will you bless others even when life has treated you harshly? There’s a gospel story there; let it be told.

One thought on “Blessing”

  1. Meaningful touches, hugs, holding hands, and the arm around a shoulder all communicate acceptance, approval, importance and value. To neglect meaningful touches and hugs is to fail to transmit the blessing to others.

    A blessing is not a blessing unless it is spoken in some shapes or forms. God blesses us so we can bless others so the next time we see a friend or someone in need, we are reminded to be a blessing to them. A meaningful hug or hand-holding can help transform a life and can help lift up someone who might be going through a suffering we may not know about!

    Everyone needs a blessing! Treat others as you want to be treated! God bless!
