Joseph's Stress Management Tips 1


Joseph can teach us several Bible stress management tips because he lived through a lot of stress in his life. These Christian stress management tips include:


1. Do not sin against God
When Joseph was working as a slave in Potiphar's house after his brothers had sold him into slavery, he tried not to sin against God when Potiphar's wife pestered him to commit adultery with her.

Joseph declined her advances not because he feared her husband, but because he feared God for he said, How can I do such a wicked thing and sin against God? (Genesis 39:9) 
How can I do such a wicked thing and sin against God Genesis 39:9

Deciding not to sin against God may have initially seemed to worsen his stressful situation since he was thrown in jail after she falsely accused him of attempted rape, but in the long run it helped him resolve his stressful situation because it was while he was in jail that he met Pharaoh's butler who later recommended him to Pharaoh as a dream interpreter.

If, on the other hand Joseph had chosen to sin against God and commit adultery, he would not have been sent to prison at the time he was imprisoned and therefore chances are that he would have never met Pharoah's butler and Pharaoh. 

Choosing to sin against God may have resulted in him missing his destiny as the Prime Minister of Egyypt and living the rest of his life as a slave working in Potiphar's house and having an affair with his wife.

Therefore regardless of your stressful situation, do your best to avoid sinning against God even if you will face dire consequences.
