This Sunday, we will look at Genesis 47, a key chapter in the development of the nation of Israel. Jacob and his family are now in Egypt. They have been given the land of Goshen, a prime area for shepherds to oversee their flocks. It will be their home for the next 400+ years.
Two amazing circumstances happen in chapter 47. A 130 year-old shepherd from Canaan blesses the most powerful man on the face of the earth. We are blessed to be a blessing - always and to whomever we are around. Also, in the midst of the worst of the famine, Joseph devises a plan to save the nation.
