Genesis 43:9 I will be surety for him; of my hand shalt thou require him: if I bring him not unto thee, and set him before thee, then let me bear the blame for ever:
The sons of Jacob are going back to Egypt. This time they make strong plans and give their word that they will take care of their little brother. Joseph can see that they have learned their lesson and changed their attitude.
I need to take responsibility for getting the gospel to people. I think that I too often make excuses, hide behind culture, theology, or whatever excuse that I can find not to have to risk myself and talk to them about Jesus. I know the truth and need to share the truth.
Am I my bother’s keeper is still a good question. I believe that I am responsible to share the gospel with him. I will give myself to do better sharing the gospel.
