God used Joseph to save the lives of his father, his brothers, and their familiesâ€”to preserve the chosen people and advance His grand covenant. In the process, God also used Joseph to save the countless inhabitants of Egypt. By interpreting Pharaohâ€™s dream, Joseph had prepared Egypt during its seven years of plenty to endure seven years of famine. As the famine progressed, the people surrendered their wealth, their property, and their lives in order to survive. They were grateful to Joseph for sustaining them through the famine. God had blessed His chosen people and the people of Egypt as well. When God blesses His people, those blessings often spill over into the lives of others.
