January 16 "Better to be a Credit than a Shame" Genesis 46-47

My Dear Ones, Sometimes God's promises move slow in fulfillment.  It has been 215 years since God promised Abraham that he would make him a great nation.  God is working in your lives.  Let God work.  Joseph didn't force anything on his brothers who contrived to dispose of him; now Joseph contrives to settle each one into work and a home and a life.  Gen 46:28. An honest living---"it is better to be the credit of a mean post than the shame of a high one."  And that quote from Matthew Henry makes me want to live well where I am, anonymity. Returning good for evil.  May that be the mantra of our lives.  I'm so touched by Barrett never wanting to throw anyone "under the bus."  Changes the way I do things.  Return good for evil!

PHOTO:  Barrett, the way you treat people touches me deeply.  Loyal.
