God's Great Purpose
In the movies and in literature, we like stories with happy endings – the crime is solved, the couple gets married, the underdog achieves victory. It’s human nature for us to want things to “work out.” For Joseph, things worked out. Throughout his difficult journey, he was able to see God’s faithfulness, God’s purpose and His plan. And though his brothers didn’t deserve forgiveness, he gave it – honoring them as his family. May we take Joseph’s example by living as people who trust in God and respond to the joys and struggles of life with a “God meant it for good” attitude.
