How many of us would prepare a meal for the people that hurt us.
Joseph did this wonderful gesture, and it helped me evaluate my walk with Christ. How many of us will give free food and return silver meant for payment in a time of famine to the people that wanted us dead. It is a very difficult thing to do, but God is able to give us the grace to do it. Joseph told them to prepare a meal and he was going to have lunch together with his brothers. In a time of famine, some people would rather see their enemies die of hunger, but Joseph forgave. He forgave because the love he had for them was greater than the hurt they did to him. This is the kind of love God expects from us. May God give us the grace to be better people and grow in love as we journey through life in Jesus name.
