Potiphar’s wife is still around. Her name is “Lust,” and she incessantly calls to every man to spend time with her. (First and Second Peter often speak of the sin of lust.) When she calls, do what Joseph wisely did: run (see v. 12). Flee fornication. Guard your eyes. It would be better to be blind than to let your eyes offend you. Guard your heart. Keep lust from entering your mind. How easy it would have been for Joseph to yield to temptation, but his salvation was the fear of the Lord (see v. 9).
Genesis 39:7 And it came to pass after these things that his master’s wife cast longing eyes on Joseph, and she said, “Lie with me.”
