And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand.”  (Genesis 39:3)
The legendary king Midas in Greek mythology had the extraordinary gift of turning everything he touched into gold. The Midas touch is a figurative expression which refers to the gift or ability of profiting from whatever one undertakes. The character in our meditation this morning could be described as a boy with the Midas touch. Young Joseph brought good fortunes and favour to the house of Potiphar. Goodness and mercy followed him and extended to those around him. While his peers were wasteful and extravagant, Joseph was resourceful and creative. While his mates incurred losses and damage for their master, Joseph brought profit and prosperity.
How do you stand? Are you a blessing or a curse to your parents? Do you contribute meaningfully to the growth of your school, fellowship and Church or do you bring defeat and disgrace? King Midas received his extraordinary gift from the god Silenus, but Joseph received his talents from the God of heaven. If you give your life to Christ today and submit to His Lordship, you have the Midas touch.
Challenge:    Are you a blessing to others?
Prayer:       Make me a channel of blessing today.
Further reading:  Genesis 39: 1—- 4
QUOTE:  You can have the Midas touch.

  1. I believe what you posted made a ton of sense.
    However, what about this? suppose you typed a catchier title?
    I ain’t suggesting your information is not good, but what if you added something to possibly get people’s attention?
    I mean THE MIDAS TOUCH | Ruler of the Richest is
    kinda vanilla. You ought to peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create article titles to grab viewers to click. You might add a video or a related pic or two to get readers interested about what you’ve got
    to say. In my opinion, it might make your blog a little bit more interesting.
