Fix Those Eyes
Genesis 49:1-50:26 Then Jacob called his sons and said, "Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you what shall happen to you in days to come...
Genesis 49think about it.
Jacob leaves a legacy of faith for his family; what's important for you to pass on? Just as Jacob reflects on his sons, how do you God's work in your family members? How does Joseph view God's plan? Where does he place his trust? What about you?
The last two chapters of Genesis wrap up Joseph's story. At this point, Joseph's family is together in Egypt. Jacob dies and then eventually Joseph does as well.
Joseph is pretty amazing, don't you think? He certainly had less than smooth sailing for a good portion of his life, yet he never waived in his faith. His attitude, his words, his actions, were stellar. Why? Because Joseph kept his eyes fixed on God.
So how can we be more like Joseph--keeping our eyes fixed on the Lord at all times? What do you do now to help in this area? What other things might be helpful? Tami W.
