How Do You Magnify Your Office:

1.Excel In Your Assignment
Case of Joseph – Genesis 39:1 – 6
1 And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him of the hands of the Ishmeelites, which had brought him down thither.
2 And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.
3 And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand.
4 And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.
5 And it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the LORD blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake; and the blessing of the LORD was upon all that he had in the house, and in the field.
6 And he left all that he had in Joseph's hand; and he knew not ought he had, save the bread which he did eat. And Joseph was a goodly person, and well favoured.

2.Be Diligent
Proverbs 22:29
- Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.

2Kings 10:16 - And he said, Come with me, and see my zeal for the LORD. So they made him ride in his chariot.
