Joseph and Potiphar's Wife Story
Greetings ... And a pleasure to be back with you at 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 Judah. Hebrews
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
Joseph and Potiphar Story Explained
Joseph and Potiphar's Wife Accusation
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
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?
Joseph and Potiphar Are No Longer Close
Joseph and Potiphar's Wife the Liar
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. In short, She accused Jacob of
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
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
Joseph and Potiphar Summary
Joseph and Potiphar's Wife Conclusion
It looks like the Lord is going to take care of Joseph, no matter
where he finds himself, but that doesn't mean there are not more
unusual situations ahead. Just as it has been, is and will be in most
Christian's lives. It is the Trials
and Tribulation that all Christians endure at one point or
another. But, remember that God is always there. Right on time. Join
us next time when Joseph interprets some of his fellow prisoner's
dreams. That's our Daily Bread for this time.
