Short Vort: Kindling Miraculous Lights
As Joseph saves the world from famine, he amassed fortunes for the Egyptian Empire. The Torah describes, in detail, how he collected vast sums and how he transferred them to the royal treasury. Why the need for all the detail?

The Midrash comments that these bars of gold and silver had special importance to Joseph. He lived life with a sense of Divine Providence and constantly saw the "big picture".  Since he was a child, he was aware of the prophetic vision of Abraham - that his people would be enslaved but,  one day, would emerge with great fortune.  As he counted these bars, he understood that the ultimate recipient would be the Nation of Israel not Pharaoh.  Joseph was sowing the seeds of redemption.

Its tough in life to see beyond the moment and recognize a Higher Hand.  The concept of Mashiach gives us hope and the faith in a better tomorrow.  By simply pausing and taking proper inventory, we can live life with deeper purpose, meaning, and inner peace.
