Then they loaded their donkeys with their grain and departed. And as one of them opened his sack to give his donkey fodder at the lodging place, he saw his money in the mouth of his sack. He said to his brothers, “My money has been put back; here it is in the mouth of my sack!” At this their hearts failed them, and they turned trembling to one another, saying, “What is this that God has done to us?”

The brothers had just been through quite the ordeal. Accused of being spies, locked in an Egyptian prison, seeing one of their brothers bound and being forced to leave him behind. Now came the ultimate scare—the money they had paid for the grain showed up in one of their grain sacks. It looked as if someone was framing them for a crime. Or was their guilty conscience creeping up on them from the time they sold their brother down to Egypt? The twists and turns of their adventure for food had befuddled them, so they finally turned to God for help. Do you turn to God for help first or wait until you have nowhere else to turn?
