The Lord was with him

Genesis 39:3-4 “And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand. And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.”

Men who are faithful to the Lord make good employees and are often first to be promoted for their diligence.

The attributes of a Godly person are even recognized by the lost, especially in the context of business.

Hard work, attention to detail, obedience, and loyalty are traits all employers are looking for and traits every believer should develop.

Let us not fail to also acknowledge God’s direction. Joseph had certainly developed righteous character, but it was also true that the Lord had a purpose in mind.

No one will ever know what may have happened if Joseph had not been sold into slavery. What we do know is that God used this man’s character in the midst of the slavery.

We seek to build character, not simply for the sake of success, but to glorify God.

Genesis 39:3-4 “And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand. And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.”
