Joseph, Son of Jacob

Joseph was his father’s favorite, a position that did not sit well with his brothers. They betrayed him, attacked him, and sold him as a slave. Joseph found himself in Egypt serving a high official. Though he prospered for a time, he was  falsely accused of a crime and thrown in prison. Yet, God was with Joseph, and through patience, perseverance, and faith, Joseph would find his himself exalted, and given the opportunity to either take vengeance on his brothers, or forgive them.  The story of Joseph reminds us of the power of forgiveness, the bonds of family, and the forever present providence of God.
