Acts 7:9-16 – 9 “And the patriarchs, becoming envious, sold Joseph into Egypt. But God was with him 10 and delivered him out of all his troubles, and gave him favor and wisdom in the presence of Pharaoh, king of Egypt; and he made him governor over Egypt and all his house. 11 Now a famine and great trouble came over all the land of Egypt and Canaan, and our fathers found no sustenance. 12 But when Jacob heard that there was grain in Egypt, he sent out our fathers first. 13 And the second time Joseph was made known to his brothers, and Joseph’s family became known to the Pharaoh. 14 Then Joseph sent and called his father Jacob and all his relatives to him, seventy-five people. 15 So Jacob went down to Egypt; and he died, he and our fathers. 16 And they were carried back to Shechem and laid in the tomb that Abraham bought for a sum of money from the sons of Hamor, the father of Shechem.
There is a popular saying that goes, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. In other words, treat people the way you would want to be treated. While that may be a good saying, it isn’t necessarily correct. Joseph taught us that we should treat people the way Jesus would treat people — with love, kindness, compassion and caring. Love can be a very powerful tool to help us and those around us heal from trials. Jesus, Himself, showed us on the cross that He never stopped loving those that had crucified Him. Remember that as you begin your day today; treat people the way Jesus would treat them, treat people the way the Lord treats you.
I pray for blessing today for you on your Journey!
