Genesis 41:9 Then spake the chief butler unto Pharaoh, saying, I do remember my faults this day:
The butler had asked Joseph to interpret his dream 2 years before this. He had promised to tell someone about Joseph’s plight. He was so self absorbed that when he got what he wanted he forgot Joseph.
I am sure time was flying for the butler. It was probably dragging for the prisoner, Joseph. Joseph sits in a jail cell while the butler’s life moved on.
When the butler thinks of using Joseph to help Pharaoh he finally remembers him. This will facilitate his release and subsequent rise to power.
I just think of how often I forget others and their needs. Then I want to remember my fault, like it isn’t such a big deal. It is a big deal to them. God please help me to think of others. Help me to consider what a blessing I can be to others.
Help me to not think so much of nor so highly of myself.
