Success Isn't a Bad Thing

Genesis 47: 14, 20

Joseph made Pharaoh a lot of money. Verse 14 says that Joseph collected all of the money in the lands of Canaan and Egypt. Later, he collected all of the livestock. In verse 20, he gets all of the land except that belonging to priests. That's a lot of wealth that Joseph brings to Pharaoh. I wrote a few posts ago that trusting God doesn't necessarily bring success, and that's true. But, success is not a bad thing when God does grant it. Joseph is fair in this wealth accumulation, giving the people a fair price for the food he sells. I thought it important to point out that success is not inherently bad.
