SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY
DR PAUL ENENCHE
THURSDAY 21 SEPTEMBER 2023.
TOPIC: BE INTERESTED IN OTHERS
SCRIPTURE: And Joseph came in unto them in the morning, and looked upon them, and, behold, they were sad. And he asked Pharaoh’s officers that were with him in the ward of his lord’s house, saying, Wherefore look ye so sadly to day?
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Being interested in others is one character that lifts men from their low estates to higher grounds.
Being interested in others is one character that lifts men from their low estates to higher grounds.
That was what Joseph did. While in prison, he saw the sad countenances of his fellow prisoners and showed care and interest. The care he showed in interpreting their dreams was his stepping stone to the palace. This means, the care or interest you show someone today can take you to your palace tomorrow.
You see, unlike Joseph, there are church members today who can see their fellow brethren in bad shapes of life, and pass by without showing any care for them.
Sometime ago, I saw someone putting on a piece of suit that looked like a “coat” of those days.
Then, I called him and said to him, “You know what, do not wear this “suit” again for life because it is no longer wearable. I will give you two new ones as mantles.” Then I prayed for him. Afterwards, I called him and gave him the two suits as I earlier told him. Tears filled his eyes, and he said with gratitude, “Sir, you did not only tell me the problem, you solved it for me.”
Today, many people see the problems of others, but instead of helping to solve the problems, they criticise and sometimes mock the people. They would say, “Look at him! Look at the shoes he is wearing, as if it is a masquerades’!”
What a heart! Truth is, people do not even care whether you have the solution to their problems. If only you can show genuine interest and care, they will value it.
Beloved, show interest in the brethren and in the people you come across. Show interest. Show care.
REMEMBER THIS: Being interested in others is one character that lifts men from their low estates to higher grounds.
1. Be truly interested in the lives and situations of others.
2. Show concern for others when and where necessary.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to show interest, care and love for others. Help me never to pass by when I see people in need, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Your giving to God, to man, and into the anointing, produces the overflow in every realm.

AMAZING FACT: The Earth is 147.2 million kilometres away from the Sun, and it is about 4.5 billion years old.
The Lord help you like He did for Joseph as you move unto higher dimensions of interest in others in Jesus’ Name.
