A decision to make. Pt 3. May 16

Joseph is now in a good place, he had been lifted by God. His dreams were now being fulfilled. His brothers who had sold him into slavery were bowing before him. Now he has a decision to make that can either make or break this entire story. You and I will also face this decision that can make or break our story. It was the decision, do I get even with my brothers for what they did or do I forgive? Whatever Joseph said, would be done to these 10 men. So his decision, do I show kindness or do I exact vengeance? You know some people’s problem is not some big, glaring sin like we see so evident in the world. some people‘s problem is not forgiving others. Imagine avoiding the temptations of this world and then coming short because we wont forgive others. Let’s not allow this to be in our lives. Jesus gives a promise and a warning concerning forgiveness : “Forgive and you will be forgiven. If we don’t forgive we won’t be forgiven.” Listen to Joseph’s reply to his brothers who thought for sure they were done for. And Joseph said unto them, fear not: for am I in the place of God? But as for you, ye thought evil against me, but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive. Wow! Joseph made the decision, my life , has been, is , and will forever be in Gods hand. He will work good for me even in the times I have been hurt by others. So can we be like Joseph? Forgive and show kindness. We sure can be, and then watch God work his grand plan in us as he did in Joseph. Ask God and he will help you forgive after all he is good at it and he lives in you . Amen
