“He tried to take advantage of me!!! I screamed and begged him not to and he finally ran away!!” Potiphar’s wife painted a vivid picture for her husband and his men of what had transpired between herself and Joseph, all the while holding Joseph’s garment.
Potiphar left in an outrage. He sentenced Joseph to jail time.
Joseph, an innocent man, would spend two years in jail for a crime he didn’t commit.
Sometimes things we say or do are misinterpreted. Sometimes people just try to do us wrong in whatever way they can.
God knows this will happen. He also knows that it’s out of our control. So He tells us to be blameless and He’ll take care of the rest.
Take comfort that He is a just Judge, that He knows the truth and that He has the final word.
