Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

“Also do not be concerned about your goods, for the best of all the land of Egypt is yours.” Gen 45:20

This is supernatural favor! Joseph’s brothers were far from perfect. They had sold Joseph into slavery because they were jealous of him! They certainly hadn’t earned a reward for good behavior.

But look how God blessed them. Joseph forgave them. Pharaoh gifted them the “best of all the land of Egypt.” In a famine where people were struggling to survive, God blessed His people so they would thrive.

The blessings of God are not conditioned on your perfect behavior; they are conditioned on your relationship with God through Jesus Christ! Joseph blessed his brothers because they were his family; and God will bless you – no matter what you’ve done – for exactly the same reason.

Prayer:

Father, thank You for Your unconditional blessings. I know my past cannot disqualify me from Your goodness. Thank You for blessing me with the best You have to offer, in Jesus’ name!
