Exodus 1:8-10 Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. 9 And he said to his people, Look, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we; 10 come, let us deal shrewdly with them, lest they multiply, and it happen, in the event of war, that they also join our enemies and fight against us, and so go up out of the land.

Does it bother you when people have a position or a situation work where they're endangering you because of their strength? Pharaoh, King of Egypt was afraid of the children of Israel in Exodus chapter one because they were growing mightier and greater than the Egyptians. But it's interesting if you think back to the book of Genesis that we're told concerning Abraham and those who interacted with him, that God would bless those who blessed Abraham and his seed and curse those who cursed Abraham and his seed. Pharaoh had an opportunity instead of being afraid of Israel, he had an opportunity to be blessed by Israel, but he chose wrong. How are you relating to those around you? Are you doing it in view of God's word? Consider God's word for your life today?
