Oddly, today we jump over all of Joseph’s experiences in Egypt – from prison to virtual prince – and find ourselves towards the end of the story with his brothers where he reveals who he is and says he was sent ahead by God to ensure his brothers’ continued existence because of the famine that has beset the area. Joseph has made meaning out of his ghastly experience and forgives his once-murderous brothers.
- Pray that all those who have life experiences which are horrid can find some kind of meaning and thrive, just as Joseph did.
