Give Credit Where It Is Due

So often we talk as if we have all power and wisdom ignoring the reality of the glory of our Great God.  Listen to what Joseph said when he could have easily taken the credit.
Then Pharaoh sent and called for Joseph, and they hurriedly brought him out of the dungeon; and when Joseph shaved himself and changed his clothes [making himself presentable], he came to Pharaoh. Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I have dreamed a dream, and there is no one who can interpret it; and I have heard it said about you that you can understand a dream and interpret it.” Joseph answered Pharaoh, “It is not in me [to interpret the dream]; God [not I] will give Pharaoh a favorable answer [through me].”  Genesis 41:14-16

Sold into slavery by his own brothers, wrongfully slandered and put in prison....What would my reaction have been?  (Gen.37,40)  Probably something like this would have been my "patient Godly" answer:
"I'll show them who's wrong"
"When I'm finished with you..."
"Where is my attorney"
"One day it will come back on your head you idiots"
"I hope you fall over dead, and buzzards eat your eyeballs"

Wow I am so spiritual.  Oh my I have a lot to learn, how about you?
