While I did not vote for Amy Klobuchar, I like her proposal!

Klobuchar wants ban on privately funded travel

Sen.-elect Amy Klobuchar said Monday she will work to ban privately funded travel for lawmakers and to prohibit free meals and gifts from lobbyists. Klobuchar, D-Minn., said she will refuse privately funded trips no matter what Congress does. She said ethics reform is needed to end corruption as well as to ensure better public policy.

  1. Kathee and I read Genesis 37 & 38 tonight
  2. I was downtown briefly from 8:30 until 10:30
  3. Kathee made Christmas candy and chex party mix
  4. I wore my newly resoled Filson boots with Scholls inserts. There was no pain walking but my ankle still swelled up. Still it is an improvement
  5. Nathan was by for dinner tonight
  6. Roger and I are watching football

Genesis 37:28, "Then Midianite traders passed by; so the brothers pulled Joseph up and lifted him out of the pit, and sold him to the Ishmaelites for twenty shekels of silver. And they took Joseph to Egypt"

This is one of my favorite Old Testament stories as it illustrates so clearly God's sovereignty and how He superintends over all the evil intents of mans heart and seemingly negative circumstances and events to bring about His will! Our God "who works all things according to the counsel of His will" (Ephesians 1:11)

Compare Genesis 50:20, "But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive"

How God sovereignly worked His will in the death of our Savior: "Him, being delivered by the determined purpose and foreknowledge of God, you have taken by lawless hands, have crucified, and put to death;" (Acts 2:23)

  1. What do you think, please, of Obadiah Shoher's interpretation of the story? (here: samsonblinded.org/blog/genesis-37.htm ) He takes the text literally to prove that the brothers played a practical joke on Yosef rather than intended to murder him or sell him into slavery. His argument seems fairly strong to me, but I'd like to hear other opinions.
