TOPIC: THE BLESSEDNESS OF FAITHFULNESS

*Read: Genesis 39:1-6*
*MEMORISE: _A faithful man will abound with blessings, But he who hastens to be rich will not go unpunished_ (Proverbs 28:20).*

*EXPOSITION*
A young man applied for a job as a farmhand. When the farmer asked for his qualifications, he said, “I can sleep when the wind blows.” This puzzled the farmer. But he liked the young man, and hired him. A few days later, the farmer and his wife were awakened in the night by a violent storm.

They quickly began to check things out to see if all was secure. They found that the shutters of the farmhouse had been securely fastened. A good supply of logs had been set next to the fireplace. The young man slept soundly. The farmer and his wife then inspected their property. They found that the farm tools had been placed in the store shed, safe from the elements. The tractor had been moved into the garage. The barn was properly locked. Even the animals were calm. All was well. The farmer then understood the meaning of the young man’s words, “I can sleep when the wind blows.” Because the farmhand did his work loyally and faithfully when the skies were clear, he was prepared for the storm when it broke. So when the wind blew, he was not afraid. He could sleep in peace.

The story about the young farmhand illustrates a principle that we would do well to learn. There was nothing dramatic or sensational in the young farmhand’s preparations. He just faithfully did what was needed each day. Consequently, peace was his, even in the storm.

When the sun set each day on Joseph’s life, he could rest easily, because he had been faithful. When he was at home with his father, Jacob, he had been a faithful son. When he minded his father’s flocks, he had been a faithful worker. When he was sold to Potiphar, he proved to be a faithful servant. Because he had been faithful, the Lord blessed everything he did. That would be your testimony, if you choose to be faithful to God and fellow humans, wherever God locates you.

*PRAYER POINTS*
*1.* Lord, I want to be faithful in all situations, please help me.
*2.* O Lord, help me to serve with all diligence as I serve You and humanity.
*3.* Father, make our leaders in all facets of life to be more committed to meeting the yearnings and aspirations of those for whom they are installed.

*EXTRA READING FOR TODAY:* Deuteronomy 28:21 – 29:16; Luke 4:18 – 4:39

GOOD MORNING, AND DO HAVE A BLESSED WEEKEND.

JESUS CHRIST IS COMING BACK VERY SOON, BE READY
