Reading and listening to the Bible, so many questions cross my mind. Not deep, theological quandaries I’m afraid, just everyday questions and though they do not add or detract from me one way or another, they keep boggling my mind.
I got a Nokia 56-something for my birthday from my husband. That phone opened a new world for me – the world of podcasts. I discovered the Daily Audio Bible and since December, 2009 it has been my daily companion. We started the Bible in January and right now we are at the story of Joseph.
Back to my question… I kept wondering; just imagine Joseph entering the royal palace after he was made second-in-command of all Egypt, and all the officials and courtiers are there bowing as he enters. Probably, Portiphar and his Missus were there. How did that woman feel when she had to bow down to the slave boy she had set up years ago? Like I said, it is not a deeply spiritual question but my imagination has been running riot.
If Joseph was a sexy young man at 17… imagine him at 30. . . And she was probably getting washed up, maybe age was catching up with her. Would she have tried to get to him once again or was she too ashamed to even try?
I don’t know and I can’t imagine. Sometimes I wish the Bible went to some more detail (as if it’s not detailed enough!). It’s crazy how we do things without realising that there are ALWAYS consequences. The way we treat people matters alot. Nigerians have a favourite saying no condition is permanent and isn’t that true! We need to be conscious of ‘tomorrow’.
On another note, I have decided to blog anonymously. I will still maintain this blog because I really love it. But for my more personal stuff, I’ll go anonymous. Too many folks getting up in my business (that’s what blogging is for isn’t it?). If you find me out there in blogosphere, be sure to let me know. I will not acknowledge you on the blog though, but maybe an email?
