Despised Shepherds

The Good Shepherd watches over His sheep.

Genesis 46 & 47

“You must tell [Pharaoh], ‘We, your servants, have raised livestock all our lives, as our ancestors have always done.’ When you tell him this, he will let you live here in the region of Goshen, for the Egyptians despise shepherds.” Genesis‬ ‭46‬:‭34‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Look at God doing it again. Pharaoh allowed Joseph’s family to live in peace because, in Pharaoh’s small mindedness, he loathed shepherds—another example of God turning someone’s disregard into favor.
