Sometimes I think we are all a little bit like the Josephites in these chapters. We see ourselves as ‘great people,’ and we want to be rewarded as though we are great people. What we don’t want to do, though, is to do work like we are great people. When it comes time for something to happen, we look outward rather than inward and heavenward for the blessings we seek. We want someone to give us what we deserve, without going through the messy difficulty of actually deserving anything.
