Business Saavy

Today's reading: Genesis 47:13-31

Joseph was a gifted leader, both for his family and for Pharaoh. As we finish out Genesis 47, the famine has hit head on and the people of Egypt turn to Joseph again and again as a matter of survival. The situation across the countryside is dire, but Joseph's earlier planning and preparation serves to save his family and preserve and protect Pharaoh and the entire population of Egypt.

Joseph was wise in the area of conducting business. He had what I'd call business savvy. He was able to assess a situation, determine the best course of action and then implement it. And through it all, he was caring, respectful and loyal on all levels. Joseph was a good steward with regard to Pharaoh and his possessions, while at the same time stewarding and overseeing the lives and well-being of the citizens of Egypt in and through this horrific crisis of famine.

Is it your practice to seek God's direction in business matters? Why is this as important as seeking God in personal matters? What does Joseph's example show us about how we should operate in business matters as followers of Christ? Tami
