Life was looking up. He was the manager in charge of everything. He made the final decisions for work duties, buying and selling and everything else. He was top dog. Yes, Joseph’s life was looking up. He was now in charge of the household of Potiphar, captain of the guard. But temptation was prowling around desiring to take Joseph down.
The Bible says that Joseph was “well-built and handsome,” something Potiphar’s wife noticed. Every day she would attempt to seduce Joseph to come to bed with her. It may be easy to resist a temptation that comes once-in-a-while, but this one was constantly coming at him. He didn’t choose to dwell on it, but when it shows itself that often how difficult to put it away from your mind!
