S. O. A. P.
Here’s your 90 second AM devotional!
So Potiphar left everything he had in Joseph’s care; with Joseph in charge, he did not concern himself with anything except the food he ate.
This is an amazing account of Joseph serving his Master to the point that … “His BOSS Had No Worries.” Potiphar, Joseph’s boss, left everything he had in Joseph’s care. When he would come home, the only thing he would concern himself with was what food he would eat for dinner.
The human landscape in my part of the world is littered with employees who are so concerned with themselves that their “Work Place” is a mess and they’re looking for “Work” … AGAIN! The idea of service and making the other guy look good is a teaching and practice that many have left by the wayside. But make no mistake … “Servant Leadership” has always been the Judeo/Christian practice. Joseph served from the Jailhouse to the Palace. And it landed him in the position of “CFO” of all of Egypt. Because of the desire Joseph had to serve, it was most likely said of him … “His BOSS Has No Worries!”
Help me this AM to refuse a place on the pedestal. Give me the strength to promote others to a place higher than me. In the end, I want You elevated to the highest place. Amen
