Genesis 44:18-34

18 Then Judah came near unto him and said, "Oh my lord, let thy servant, I pray thee, speak a word in my lord's ears, and let not thine anger burn against thy servant; for thou art even as Pharaoh. 19 My lord asked his servants, saying, `Have ye a father or a brother?' 20 And we said unto my lord, `We have a father, an old man, and a child of his old age, a little one; and his brother is dead, and he alone is left of his mother, and his father loveth him.' 21 And thou saidst unto thy servants, `Bring him down unto me, that I may set mine eyes upon him.' 22 And we said unto my lord, `The lad cannot leave his father; for if he should leave his father, his father would die.' 23 And thou saidst unto thy servants, `Unless your youngest brother come down with you, ye shall see my face no more.' 24 And it came to pass, when we came up unto thy servant, my father, we told him the words of my lord. 25 And our father said, `Go again, and buy us a little food.' 26 And we said, `We cannot go down. If our youngest brother be with us, then will we go down, for we may not see the man's face unless our youngest brother is with us.' 27 And thy servant, my father, said unto us, `Ye know that my wife bore me two sons; 28 and the one went out from me, and I said, "Surely he is torn in pieces"; and I saw him not since. 29 And if ye take this also from me, and harm befall him, ye shall bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave.' 30 Now therefore when I come to thy servant my father and the lad be not with us, seeing that his life is bound up in the lad's life, 31 it shall come to pass, when he seeth that the lad is not with us, that he will die; and thy servants shall bring down the gray hairs of thy servant our father with sorrow to the grave. 32 For thy servant became surety for the lad unto my father, saying, `If I bring him not unto thee, then I shall bear the blame to my father for ever.' 33 Now therefore, I pray thee, let thy servant remain instead of the lad as a bondman to my lord, and let the lad go up with his brethren. 34 For how shall I go up to my father and the lad be not with me, lest perhaps I see the evil that shall come upon my father?"

Genesis 45

1 Then Joseph could not restrain himself before all those who stood by him; and he cried, "Cause every man to go out from me!" And there stood no man with him while Joseph made himself known unto his brethren. 2 And he wept aloud, and the Egyptians and the house of Pharaoh heard. 3 And Joseph said unto his brethren, "I am Joseph. Doth my father yet live?" And his brethren could not answer him, for they were troubled at his presence. 4 And Joseph said unto his brethren, "Come near to me, I pray you." And they came near; and he said, "I am Joseph your brother, whom ye sold into Egypt. 5 Now therefore be not grieved nor angry with yourselves that ye sold me hither, for God sent me before you to preserve life. 6 For these two years hath the famine been in the land, and yet there are five years in which there shall neither be planting nor harvest. 7 And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance. 8 So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God; and He hath made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt. 9 Hasten ye, and go up to my father and say unto him, `Thus saith thy son Joseph: God hath made me lord of all Egypt. Come down unto me, tarry not; 10 and thou shalt dwell in the land of Goshen, and thou shalt be near unto me -- thou, and thy children, and thy children's children, and thy flocks and thy herds and all that thou hast. 11 And there will I nourish thee (for yet there are five years of famine), lest thou and thy household and all that thou hast come to poverty.' 12 And behold, your eyes see, and the eyes of my brother Benjamin, that it is my mouth that speaketh unto you. 13 And ye shall tell my father of all my glory in Egypt, and of all that ye have seen; and ye shall make haste and bring down my father hither." 14 And he fell upon his brother Benjamin's neck, and wept; and Benjamin wept upon his neck. 15 Moreover he kissed all his brethren, and wept upon them; and after that his brethren talked with him.

16 And the fame thereof was heard in Pharaoh's house, saying, "Joseph's brethren have come"; and it pleased Pharaoh well, and his servants. 17 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, "Say unto thy brethren, `This do ye: Load your beasts and go, get you unto the land of Canaan. 18 And take your father and your households, and come unto me; and I will give you the good of the land of Egypt, and ye shall eat the fat of the land.' 19 Now thou art commanded, this do ye: `Take with you wagons out of the land of Egypt for your little ones and for your wives, and bring your father, and come. 20 Also, regard not your possessions, for the good of all the land of Egypt is yours.'"

21 And the children of Israel did so; and Joseph gave them wagons, according to the commandment of Pharaoh, and gave them provision for the way. 22 To all of them he gave each man changes of raiment; but to Benjamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver, and five changes of raiment. 23 And to his father he sent in this manner: ten asses laden with the good things of Egypt, and ten she-asses laden with corn and bread and meat for his father on the way. 24 So he sent his brethren away, and they departed; and he said unto them, "See that ye fall not out on the way." 25 And they went up out of Egypt, and came into the land of Canaan unto Jacob their father, 26 and told him, saying, "Joseph is yet alive, and he is governor over all the land of Egypt." And Jacob's heart fainted, for he believed them not. 27 And they told him all the words of Joseph which he had said unto them; and when he saw the wagons which Joseph had sent to carry him, the spirit of Jacob their father revived. 28 And Israel said, "It is enough; Joseph my son is yet alive! I will go and see him before I die."

Psalm 105:1-22

1 O give thanks unto the LORD, call upon His name;
make known His deeds among the people.
2 Sing unto Him, sing psalms unto Him;
talk ye of all His wondrous works.
3 Glory ye in His holy name;
let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.
4 Seek the LORD and His strength;
seek His face evermore.
5 Remember His marvelous works that He hath done,
His wonders and the judgments of His mouth,
6 O ye seed of Abraham, His servant,
ye children of Jacob, His chosen.

7 He is the LORD our God;
His judgments are over all the earth.
8 He hath remembered His covenant for ever,
the word which He commanded to a thousand generations,
9 which covenant He made with Abraham,
and His oath unto Isaac,
10 and confirmed the same unto Jacob as a law,
and to Israel for an everlasting covenant,
11 saying, "Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan,
the lot of your inheritance,"
12 when they were but a few men in number,
yea, very few and strangers in it.
13 When they went from one nation to another,
from one kingdom to another people,
14 He suffered no man to do them wrong;
yea, He reproved kings for their sakes,
15 saying, "Touch not Mine anointed,
and do My prophets no harm."

16 Moreover He called for a famine upon the land;
He broke the whole staff of bread.
17 He sent a man before them,
even Joseph who was sold as a servant,
18 whose feet they hurt with fetters;
he was laid in irons.
19 Until the time when his word came to pass,
the word of the LORD tried him.
20 The king sent and loosed him, even the ruler of the people,
and let him go free.
21 He made him lord of his house
and ruler of all his possessions,
22 to command his princes at his pleasure
and teach his elders wisdom.

Words of Worship - Mark 1:15

"The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand. Repent ye and believe the Gospel." 

Matthew 10:7-15

7 And as ye go, preach, saying, `The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.' 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils. Freely ye have received; freely give. 9 Provide neither gold nor silver nor brass in your purses, 10 nor pack for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves; for the workman is worthy of his meat. 11 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and there abide till ye go thence. 12 And when ye come into a house, salute it, 13 and if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it; but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you. 14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. 15 Verily I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the Day of Judgment than for that city.


Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiasticus 29:9

Help the poor for the commandment's sake, 
and turn him not away because of his poverty.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 6:32b-33

For your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.
