Whether you are home with your family, or you are at work or out shopping, or even at church – do the people you meet frequently know? If you have a job out of the house – does your boss, or supervisor know? If you have children – do they know? How about this one – does your spouse know? Does your extended family know? OR do you have to tell them?
I am sure by now you know what I’m talking about. So, would you? Would you have to tell individuals you come in contact with that you love God with all your heart, and you want to please Him in everything you do?
Joseph didn’t have to tell anyone! Joseph did not have to give his testimony. According to the Written Word – Joseph didn’t have to say a word! He LIVED IT! He truly walked with God! He had great favor with God!
“When his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord gave him success in everything he did, Joseph found favor in his eyes and became his attendant. Potiphar put him in charge of his household, and he entrusted to his care everything he owned. From the time he put him in charge of his household and of all that he owned; the Lord blessed the household of the Egyptian because of Joseph. The blessing of the Lord was on everything Potiphar had, both in the house and in the field. So, Potiphar left everything he had in Joseph’s care; with Joseph in charge, he did not concern himself with anything except the food he ate.” Genesis 39:3-6 (NIV)
St. Francis reportedly said, “Preach Jesus, and if necessary, use words.” Witness for Christ each day, and if necessary, use words.
