"And Joseph answered Pharoah, saying, it is not in me: God shall give Pharoah an answer of peace"
As a song writer rightly wrote: "As the global must be to the Lord, for He is worthy of our praise. No man on earth should give glory to himself, because all the glory must be to the Lord". Joseph the dreamer had been known to be an interpreter of dreams. He interpreted the dreams of fellow prisoners while in the prison and they happened just as he had said. Soon after, Joseph was invited by King Pharoah to interpret his dreams. There he displayed a rare virtue of humility. Unlike many people that would brag and boast, Joseph recognized God as the source of his ability to interpret dreams. He gave all the glory to God before the king and his subjects, that he was just an instrument in the hands of God.
Joseph's behavior is a big lesson for all youths. He was not like the youths who would attribute their success or feat to their ability, determination and hardwork. Such students, rather than acknowledge the divine enablement that God has given them, resort to pride. Learn to acknowledge God in your success.
CHALLENGE: I will acknowledge God in everything I do.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to return all glory unto you always.
