September 28 – Genesis

The longest story in the book of Genesis is the story of Joseph. This continues in chapter 39.

But the Lord was with Joseph and showed him steadfast love; he gave him favour in the sight of the chief jailer.  The chief jailer committed to Joseph’s care all the prisoners who were in the prison, and whatever was done there, he was the one who did it.  The chief jailer paid no heed to anything that was in Joseph’s care, because the Lord was with him; and whatever he did, the Lord made it prosper.

Reflection – Even in his oppressive situation, Joseph seems to thrive.  What enables some people to see possibilities, and others to see barriers? What goes into your outlook on your life?
