Bow Down To Me


Genesis 37:1–11

We don’t know why Joseph told his brothers about his dreams.

His motives might be entirely innocent.

But sharing his dreams had disastrous results.

His brothers already hated him because they saw that their father Jacob loved him more than any of them.

Joseph’s dream that implied he would rule over them one day made them even more angry.

*******

Many of Jesus’ brethren — the Jewish leaders of his time — reacted violently to his claims of lordship too.

*******

But as with Joseph, God blessed the Gentiles and the Jews through Jesus.

*******

The children of God will recognize who Jesus is and bow down to him.
