THE MIDAS TOUCH
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.
