Genesis 39:5 And it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the LORD blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake; and the blessing of the LORD was upon all that he had in the house, and in the field.
Joseph is one of the great figures of Scripture. Twenty-five percent of the content of the Book of Genesis is about him. When we come to realize that Joseph is perhaps the greatest type of Christ in the Old Testament then we can understand why the Father would devote so much ink to him. God blessed the house of the Egyptian- Why? Why would God let His blessing rest on the house of a pagan, idol worshiping Egyptian? The obvious answer is for Joseph's sake. Joseph like us is the salt of the earth. We are people of influence that have great power for good or ill in the lives of those with whom we touch each day. We have the potential to bring God's blessing to so many people, as we share Christ with them and do our best to be a testimony for Jesus it is inevitable that their lives will be enriched because of us. Put your name in the blank: "and the Lord blessed so and so for ? 's sake."
Who will God bless today because of you? You shall be a blessing, this is God's desire for us. Look for someone today whose life can use the blessing of God and be that blessing to them.
