WIFE STUDY ON JOSEPH AND POTIPHAR'S
WIFE STORY WITH JOSEPH AND POTIPHAR'S
Greetings ... And welcome back to
Daily Bread. Here’s something new for you today. You may have noticed in
some of our stories that we include little “crumbs” of interesting
information that we refer to as Daily Bread “crumbs.” We’d like to add
something new today, called Daily Bread “sticks.” Bread sticks are things
that will be helpful if they “stick” in your mind.
Today’s Daily Bread Stick is about our
last story concerning Judah. For those who concluded that Judah is a dirty
rotten scoundrel, consider these things: Jesus sprang out of the tribe of
Revelation 5:5. Jesus once said to a group of scribes and Pharisees who
condemned a harlot, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a
stone at her.
John 8:7. And finally, you just never know who God will choose for His
many plans. Just ask Paul.
1 Timothy 1:15. Suppose God chose all perfect people. We would all lose
hope, and our faith in grace would be lost. Just one more thing about the
matter before we continue on with our story about Joseph. Judah did
something that most people find very difficult to do. He said, I was
wrong. And he left it at that. He didn’t let his pride add any
excuses, ifs, ands or buts. Just few bread sticks for you.
JOSEPH AND POTIPHAR'S WIFE LESSON WITH JOSEPH AND POTIPHAR'S WIFE EXPLANATION
AND JOSEPH AND POTIPHAR'S WIFE SUMMARY
Now, on with the story. The last
thing we knew, Joseph was sold as a slave. His master was an Egyptian named
Potiphar, who was an officer of the Pharaoh, and captain of the guard.
As you may have guessed, the Lord
looked after Joseph and he was successful. His master noticed that the Lord
was with him and that everything he did was prosperous. Potiphar
appreciated Joseph and made him manager of all that he had, so the Lord
blessed everything Potiphar had.
He trusted Joseph so much that he
didn’t ever check on his own wealth except for what he ate. Joseph was a
good person and well liked.
After a while, Potiphar’s wife took an
interest in Joseph and wanted to be unfaithful to her husband Potiphar with
him. When she approached Joseph with her indecent proposal, Joseph said,
No, my master trusts all he has to me. I’m his most valued servant and he
hasn’t kept anything from me but you, because you’re his wife. How could I
ever do such a thing and sin against God?
Day after day she tried to persuade
him, but he didn’t listen to her. Then one day when Joseph went into the
house to do his work, none of the other servants were inside. She caught
him by his shirt, and he loosened out of it and left it in her hand and ran
out. When she saw that he left his shirt, she called the other servants and
told them that her husband brought in a Hebrew to mock them. She said that
Joseph tried to defile her, but she screamed and when he heard her scream he
left his shirt and ran out.
JOSEPH AND POTIPHAR'S WIFE INFORMATION WITH JOSEPH AND
POTIPHAR'S WIFE MEANING AND JOSEPH AND POTIPHAR'S WIFE DISCUSSION
She repeated her lie to Potiphar and
he was very angry. He took Joseph and put him into the prison where the
king’s prisoners were held.
But the Lord was still with Joseph,
and made Joseph well liked by the keeper of the prison, who put Joseph in
charge of all the other prisoners. The prison keeper didn’t have to worry
about anything with Joseph managing things because the Lord made everything
he did prosper.
It looks like the Lord is going to
take care of Joseph, no matter where he finds himself, but that doesn’t mean
there aren’t more unusual situations ahead. Join us next time when Joseph
interprets some of his fellow prisoner’s dreams. That’s our Daily Bread for
