Genesis 44:18-21,23-29,45:1-5, Psalm 105, Matthew 10:7-15

Never give up on God

Judah, Jacob’s fourth son, was a decisive and natural leader. He stepped forward, recommending Joseph be sold into slavery, then lied to his father about it (Gen 37:26, 32). Now he steps forward to take the place of youngest brother Benjamin, for the sake of his father. God develops character through trials and experience. Judah now shows integrity, courage, and compassion. When we fail or are sinned against, we should never give up. God does not abandon us. God prevails by bringing good from anything. Be open to God today.
