Scripture: Genesis 44:4
Genesis 44:4 states, “When they had gone out of the city, and were not yet far off, Joseph said to his steward, “Get up, follow the men; and when you overtake them, say to them, ‘Why have you repaid evil for good?” This had to be Joseph’s misunderstood heart-cry for years – “Why have you repaid me evil for good?” The baptism is when people repay evil for good, the cup is when God repays evil for good. The cup is harder than the baptism. The core issue in this passage is, “Why have you repaid evil for good?” The heart of every preparation boils down to this issue. Can we continue to give good for evil, even in the midst of paying a preparational price? Jesus is our example. When people pay us evil for good, they fill a cup and when the cup is full, the God who kills twice visits!
