Genesis 46-47

Jacob and his family went to Egypt to see his son Joseph.  Joseph meets them with great pleasure and shows no hard feelings towards his brothers.  He wants to accept them into the kingdom but he also knows that the Egyptians look down on shepherds.  He sets them up in some land outside of Canaan.

Pharaoh accepted Joseph’s family in and gave them positions of their calling.  We should not try to be something we are not.  If God has called us to a specific area we should not try to adjust to fit the pleasures of man.  We cannot impress everyone and sometimes anyone.  We must first seek the will of God and please Him.
