“Life opens up opportunities to you, and you either take them or you stay afraid of taking them.” -Jim Carrey
Joseph was sold into slavery to Egypt at the age of 17, and he was 30 when his opportunity finally came to gain his freedom. Joseph had always had the ability to interpret dreams, but finally put his ability into action by interpreting Pharaoh’s dream (Gen. 40). Life is about recognizing the opportunities that come our way and seizing them. Don’t wallow in the opportunities missed, but strive in the future that you won’t let a God-given opportunity pass you by.
Make the most of every opportunity… (Ephesians 5:16, NLT).
