Then Judah said, “What shall we say to my lord? What shall we speak? Or how shall we clear ourselves? God has found out the iniquity of your servants; here we are, my lord’s slaves, both we and he also with whom the cup was found.”
-In Hebrew, slave is written as ebed & it means bondservant, attendant
-Joseph’s cup a symbol of authority was found in Benjamin’s sack which meant slavery in Egypt as punishment. His brother Judah was willing to take his place, by taking his plight/ iniquity from him, a picture of Jesus Who gave His cup/ Himself for the remission of our sins. Later on they were given new garments as Christ was crowned with authority.
We thank You Father, for Your love & compulsion for us. As we start a new week may You cleanse us from our sins & may Your saving hand lead us out of any difficulty that we face in our lives & families. Amen
