YOUR BIRTHRIGHT OR YOUR POSITION IS A FACTOR OF INVESTMENT
“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Live as free man but do not use your freedom as a cover- up for evil; live as servants of God” 1 peter 2:9; 16
However, the story continues! Joseph was sent to meet his brothers at their work place. He went with his coat of honor (the coat of many colors) and food for his brothers. He reached where he thought the brothers would be, but he did not find them. He turned around and around until he was told to go over to Dothan which was very far away from where he was. Joseph went there not minding what would happens on the way. He determined to accomplish the mission so that he would shade of the forest and he did not fear the wild beast of the environment. He knew in his heart that he was walking with the king of the universe, the maker of the universe, the maker of the heaven and the earth, the “I AM THAT I AM” and the great deliverer of mankind.
As Joseph saw the glimpse of his brothers, his heart was melted with joy, his mouth was filled with smiles and his countenance was lit up. He had found his brothers and his blood! He had found Reuben; their first born, Simeon, Levi, Judah and all his brothers. He thought in his heart that the brothers would gladly welcome him and ask him how he had come to know the road to Dothan and who had shown him the way. He was prepared to answer the brothers accordingly and to remind them of God’s protection to his handiwork. But the brothers did not care to ask him. They did not even care about his welfare. As their hearts were full of evil so were their countenances. They were not happy at all to see the dreamer as if Joseph had stopped them from dreaming.
