Messy Lives

Genesis 39:1-6
Even though Joseph was sold into slavery, Scripture says the Lord was with him. He becomes very successful under his new master and is eventually given authority over everything Potiphar owned. Where Joseph could have given up hope, he remained disciplined as a servant and as a result “the Lord caused all that he did to succeed in his hands” (39:4 ESV) and “the Lord blessed the Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake; the blessing of the Lord was on all that he had, in house and field” (39:5 ESV).
