It is Not in Me – Joseph What is your response when other praise you for the accomplishments you’ve done for God? Do you direct the glory back to him or do you accept it as your own? Take a look in the Bible at the life of Joseph. Though Joseph could have felt God owed him after having spent many years in the jail cell. He humbled himself and considered not what the end result of his life would be, but simply chose to edify Christ. He simply gave the glory to God. We can learn a great lesson from his life.
