Genesis 41:56 - Reaching Out During Hard Times

And the famine was over all the face of the earth: and Joseph opened all the storehouses, and sold unto the Egyptians; and the famine waxed sore in the land of Egypt.
Joseph was wise to opened all the storehouses to sell corn. During hard times, people are extra sensitive and will curse those that store up excess for themselves. However, blessed are those the are willing to barter at a fair exchange rate to help those that are in need (Proverbs 11:26).
