“And Joseph sent his father these things . . .” Genesis 45:23
Joseph had instructed his brothers to return to Canaan and retrieve their father, their wives, and their children, and to bring them all to Egypt. Egypt would be the place of refuge from all the terrors of life that afflicted the world at that time. But he didn’t make them wait until they got to Egypt to give them the bounty of his grace. He sent them abundant supplies of goods and food to enjoy before they ever left their homes.
Christians have a wonderful home in heaven away from all the pains of this world, but we don’t have to wait until heaven to receive blessings from God. Jesus taught us to pray, “Give us this day our daily bread”. He takes care of us while we are here and all along the way to His home. Jesus loves us as Joseph loved his family and He will care for us far better than Joseph could care for his own.
Dear Father, Thank You for caring for us along the way to heaven. Amen.
