Savings for Harvest and Famine

Joseph, the son of Jacob who had been sold to Egypt by his older brothers, is summoned from prison to the Pharaoh’s chambers to interpret a dream. God gave the interpretation of Pharaoh’s dream to Joseph; it was a dream that predicted Egypt would go through 7 years of prosperity and then 7 years of famine.  Joseph was made the second in command of all Egypt by Pharaoh because of his accurate interpretation of the dream. Just as Joseph predicted, during the 7 years of prosperity and abundance, Joseph planned to save wisely to endure the 7 long years of drought.
