God's First Crisis ManagerCrisis management had its beginning in Egypt in 1715 BC. A crisis was developing and Egypt's King (Pharoah) didn't even know about it.
However, because this particular Pharoah was to be used of God to carry out a major part of His plan, Pharoah received a heavenly message sent by God by means of a dream. Her is God's first Crisis Manager. Joseph takes over by interpreting the dream. Read Pharoah's challenge to Joseph below:
This proposal pleased Pharaoh and all his servants. And Pharaoh said to his servants, “Can we find a man like this, in whom is the Spirit of God?” Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has shown you all this, there is none so discerning and wise as you are. You shall be over my house, and all my people shall order themselves as you command. Only as regards the throne will I be greater than you.” And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.” Genesis 41:37-41 (ESV)
