Reputation

Today's reading: Genesis 47:1-12

As we did in Genesis 45, here in Genesis 47 we again get to see the relationship between Joseph and Pharaoh, which includes a closer look at Pharaoh. I was drawn to Pharaoh's interactions with Joseph, his brothers, and then with Jacob because of how these exchanges revealed so clearly the respect Pharaoh had for Joseph.

Joseph had a reputation—and it was a good one! But his strong moral reputation didn't just happen. Joseph was diligent in following after God and making sure his lifestyle and choices were in alignment with what he knew was right in God's eyes. What a great reminder that all the choices we make—big, small, and everything in between—are important. We don't live in a vacuum, particularly in today's world. People are always observing us, so how we choose to live our lives matters.

What would you say your reputation is with other people—in your family, neighborhood, at work, at school, and at church? Do your actions, choices, and words reflect that you are a follower of Christ? Tami

I would love to say that I had a reputation like Joseph,but those who love me and know me best know that I need improvement to be more like Jesus.
I would love to say that people who see me as one who loves the Lord would also desire to follow Him too,but that is not the case most of the time. They think that I am too rigid in my desire to please the Lord. I need to stay close to the Lord in prayer and His Word.

I highly respect Joseph and would like to say that I had a perfect life although I am very serious about a strong moral reputation knowing it pleases the Lord and a witness to those who do not want a lifestyle with God being their Savior at this time.I need to keep praying for them.
