The man who has friends must show himself a friend; And friend there is more united than a brother. Proverbs 18:24

The remarkable prosperity that accompanied everything Joseph was commissioned to do was not the result of a direct miracle, but his industry, interest, and energy were crowned with divine blessing. Joseph attributed his success to God’s favor, and even his idolatrous master accepted this as the secret of his unmatched prosperity. However, without your consistent and well-directed efforts, I would never have been able to achieve such success. God was glorified by the faithfulness of his servant. It was the divine purpose that by purity and righteousness, the believer in God should appear in stark contrast to idolaters, so that the light of heavenly grace would shine amid the darkness of paganism. PP 54.
