What Opportunity Reveals
 

Thus [Potiphar] left all that he had in Joseph’s hand, and he did not know what he had except for the bread which he ate.

Genesis 39:6a

1 Corinthians 4:1-2

 

 

In July of this year, a bank teller pled guilty to embezzling nearly two million dollars from the State Bank of Lincoln where she worked as a head teller. She pulled off her crime by having access to the bank’s vault and by changing audit numbers. Because she had worked at the bank for nearly two decades, she was trusted.


Joseph, in a much shorter time, grew to be totally trusted by his master, Potiphar, a wealthy official in Egypt. In fact, Potiphar turned over so much responsibility to Joseph—managing everything he owned—that all he knew about his property was the food he ate every day. Joseph managed everything else. How easy in such a situation—complete, trusted access to great wealth—would it have been for Joseph to line his own pockets with Potiphar’s goods? What the playwright Oscar Wilde said—“I can resist anything except temptation”—was not true of Joseph. His integrity was not changed because of his privileged position.


Circumstances don’t create character; they reveal character. Arm yourself today with the integrity of Christ.



The three most important ingredients in Christian work are integrity, integrity, integrity.

What would you do if you were the only one in town with a storm cellar and a tornado was approaching in the distance? Would you rush to the cellar alone, or would you alert your family and friends of the coming danger?

No doubt you would act to get your loved ones underground. You’d get on the telephone, urging every friend and neighbor you could to join you in the storm cellar.
