LOVE BRINGS OUR INHERITANCE
When I remember how Joseph eventually rose from prison to palace, and how his brethren came and bow down to him, in fulfillment of a 13 years dream; I cannot but trace it to his final seed of love, sown to those co-prisoners.
The fellow that God will use to help fulfill your long awaited promise also need your seed of love.
For the Zarephath woman, it was her last meal given to Elijah (1Kings 17:10-16)
There is nothing that takes a man to the throne so easily than love.
Look behind your history line, most probably, the one who showed you the way to the top (where you are today) was once loved by you.
The person might be a once co-tenant, co-traveller, classmate, roommate, fellowship brother or a nice neighbor with whom you showered love upon in the past.
Joseph was so caring to his co-prisoners that he said to them in Genesis 40:6-7 KJV
“And Joseph came in unto them in the morning, and looked upon them, and, behold, they were sad.  And he asked Pharaoh’s officers that were with him in the ward of his lord’s house, saying, Wherefore look ye so sadly to day?”
Do you care to know what the people around you are going through?
Do you even care to respond to their call for help and assistance?
Hmmn, I’m afraid! If you don’t, you may unknowingly refuse to sow the seed of love that will make them open the door that will bring you to your own Pharaoh.
Someone is saying right now: ‘God can do it without the Cup Bearer joor!’ But He chose to use him. That’s why He brought him across the path of Joseph.
I was alarmed the very time I came across Luke 16:12. Do I want to end in my God-given inheritance? Then, it all depend on whether I sow seed of love and remain committed to another person’s course.
Here is what Luke 16:12 KJV says:
“And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man’s, who shall give you that which is your own?”
I wonder if Joshua would ever become the leader of Israel if he did not serve Moses well.
I wonder if Naaman, the leper will ever got completely healed if he had not shown love to his little maid.
The one whom God will use to lead the way to your inheritance might come your way as a destitute, poor and sickly. The fellow could be your Domestic Staff, driver, Gardener, or your gatekeeper.
Do you remember that sickly and hungry Amalekite servant, an Egyptian whom David first fed? He was the same fellow who led David to recovered all his lost inheritance (1Sam. 30:9–17).
God is not mistaken! He brought people across you, people who seems weak today.
In their weaknesses lies your inheritance.
And by loving them, that inheritance will be delivered to you!
Don’t forget; the once confused and downcast cup bearer in prison became strong to lead the way into Joseph’s lots.
Shine your eyes and sow the right seed of love today.
