No sooner was the cupbearer freed from jail than he forgot his promise to help Joseph, who had interpreted his dream. Joseph had been imprisoned under false accusation. God was with nevertheless, even though the cupbearer forgot his debt for Joseph’s interpretation of the dream that Pharaoh would free him.

TWO YEARS LATER, Pharaoh has a dream that none of his sorcerers can interpret. Only then does the cupbearer remember his faults and tells Pharaoh about Joseph, who is promptly freed, washed, shaved and ushered into Pharaoh’s presence. He interprets Pharaoh’s dream, and his fortunes are changed.

Sadly, most of us fall in with the cupbearer. God has given us so many good things, and we don’t want to remember or acknowledge our debt of gratitude to Him.

  1. A major problem indeed, with many repercussions.

  2. I agree with you but life has taught me that we don’t want to remember or acknowledge the little things. We praise God and thank Him when He answers our big prayers or sends amazing miracles, yet there are so many little things that He does for us every single day … definitely something to think about as we start out on this last week of October.

  3. So many empty, vessels in this world will be waiting, to be filled.
