The One Year Bible Blog notes:

Comments from you & Question of the Day - Based on my comments above related to our readings in Genesis about God blessing Potiphar for Joseph's sake - I wonder - does God intervene and bless our work lives? I think he does. I'd love to get your opinions on this - do you pray about your work life regularly? Do you think God blesses your work life? And like Joseph, does God maybe bless those around you, even if they aren't necessarily in relationship with God? And maybe does he do this for your sake?

I think that God does bless us, so that we may bless others, and so that God may be glorified. When I seek to glorify God in my work - or in whatever I do - God blesses that work. I think God blesses us because He loves us, and wants to bless us, but the ultimate purpose of such blessing is, again, to reciprocate that blessing, and to glorify God.
