Readings for March 12th

So Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh, for all the Egyptians sold their fields, because the famine was severe on them. The land became Pharaoh’s. Genesis 47:20

No good deed goes unpunished. The God given resourcefulness of Joseph became the means to their enslavement. As Pharaoh became more powerful and later Pharaohs forgot Joseph, the people and land of Goshen became slaves alongside the rest of the country.
