Are You a Reuben?
7/27/2016 3:53:18 PM BY Mark Hancock, Trail Life USA CEO

Joseph needed someone to speak on his behalf as jealous brothers conspired to kill him in an act that would rob Joseph (and a starving generation) of a God-favored destiny.

Reuben became that someone.

But Reuben heard it, and he delivered him (Joseph) out of their hands, and said, ‘Let us not kill him.’” (Genesis 37:21).

There have been times when “brothers” have sold me out. It was easy for them to get drawn into gossip, lower-level group-think, or corrupt communication when some dark motive was stirring.

At other times I have had been honored to have a ”Reuben” speak for me, defending me in my absence or, perhaps, at a time when defending myself would not have been fruitful.

Still, while having a Reuben is a blessing, being a Reuben is courageous.

Can you look for an opportunity to speak for someone in their defense? Who knows what (or whose) destiny you are protecting? In the case of Reuben, his defense of Joseph saved even his jealous brothers and, eventually, an entire nation.

The true heart of a Trailman beats for opportunities to be a Reuben. Sure, it’s counter to a culture that is quick to criticize, but it’s a chance to Walk Worthy and is precisely what Jesus did for us.
