From receiving to giving

It’s been a while since I wrote a post that wasn’t techy but I thought I will share this.

In Genesis 37, the Bible introduces Joseph the dreamer. Gen 37:5 reads thus:

“And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more

I can’t imagine what it would have been like being Joseph- hated by your own brothers to the point of being sold (they even wanted to kill him) but that is not where I’m going with this. As we continue in the story of Joseph, we see that he is a boy/man who has the fear of God in him and God made him prosper everywhere he went. Then in Genesis 40, we see Joseph the Interpreter and it was this act of interpretation that eventually led to his release from prison and uplifting, albeit 2 years later.

Then it struck me: The dreams we receive will become reality when we start giving something to bring about the fulfillment of those dreams, that is, being a solution provider.
