Post sermon thoughts

Yesterday I preached the last of my Genesis sermons and it had to do with Joseph (you can read it below).  In essence, I pointed out that Joseph was the world's first robber baron -- instituting a mandatory 20 percent tax on all produce and the selling what was forcibly collected back to the people for their money, cattle and bodies.

As people were filing out of service, more than one of them said something along the lines of, "I didn't know Joseph did that!  I'm going to have to go and read that story again."

Mission accomplished.
