Tree of Life Day 12: Genesis 37, 39-41

Every place Joseph went he prospered, succeeded, kicked booty and took names.  Whether it was in Potiphar's house, the prison, or the Palace of Pharaoh, Joseph was one prospering fellow.

But the thing that struck me from this morning's reading was the why of that.  About 4 times, the Scripture says a variation of this:  The Lord was with Joseph.

And so that brings me to this question for you, me, and everyone else:  what would change about your day if the Lord was with you?

How would your end of the week meeting look differently?  How would planning next week look differently?  How would parenting your kids look differently?  How would dating your spouse look differently?  Worshipping on Sunday?  Recreation on Saturday?  Monday night karate?  Tuesday morning breakfast?  How would those things look differently?

Because here's the kicker:  the Lord IS with you.  Jesus promised to be with us to the end of the age.

So how does that change your day?
