The time of abundance came just as Joseph had predicted. Then the time of terrible famine came just as Joseph predicted. The famine was so bad that it spread over the entire country of Egypt and all over the known world. When the resources of the Egyptian people ran out then Joseph gave the order for the storehouses to be opened and grain was sold to the people of Egypt. Even other countries came to Egypt to buy grain. Egypt saved so they were able to take care of their own and help others as well.
Do you have a saving plan that would cover your needs in hard times? Would you have enough to help others if they needed it?
