And he commanded the steward of his house, saying, Fill the men's sacks with food, as much as they can carry, and put every man's money in his sack's mouth.
Today's Morsel: How much trust do you put in those who manage your money at the bank or your investments? For some reason, many have lost trust in those who are to be good stewards. According to the Greek definition of a steward, he or she is a house distributor (that is manager), or overseer, (that is an employee in that capacity); by extension a fiscal agent (treasurer); figuratively a preacher (of the Gospel). The Bible says that Joseph commanded the steward of his house. Paul stated, "Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful" (1 Corinthians 4:2). He must be found faithful. He must be reliable, dependable, trustworthy, and loyal. Every employer is looking for men and women who are faithful and good stewards. Joseph had proven himself to be a good steward to both Potiphar and Pharaoh, and this is why he was placed in charge. We must first be faithful to God. You see, if one isn't faithful to God and the things of God, they will never be faithful to others.
Sing: I'm Yours Lord, everything I am, everything I'm not, everything I've got. I'm Yours Lord, try me now and see, see if I can be completely Yours.
Thought for Today: Most men will proclaim everyone his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find? (Proverbs 20:6)
