“When Joseph’s eye fell on his full brother Benjamin, he asked, ‘Is this your youngest brother, of whom you told me?’ ” —Genesis 43:29

Joseph was reunited with his full brother Benjamin. “Joseph had to hurry out, for he was so overcome with affection for his brother that he was on the verge of tears. He went into a private room and wept there. After washing his face, he reappeared and, now in control of himself, gave the order, ‘Serve the meal’ ” (43:30-31). “Benjamin’s portion was five times as large as anyone else’s” (43:34).

Prayer: Father, may we love our brothers and sisters in Christ as Joseph loved his brother Benjamin.
Promise: ” ‘Be at ease,’ he replied; ‘you have no need to fear. Your God and the God of your father must have put treasures in your bags for you.’ ” —43:23
