Joseph’s story occupies more space in the book of Genesis that any other single individual—more than Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, or even his own father Jacob! Most individuals “get” Joseph on some level. We can relate to him. We patently understand difficult family relationships. We’ve experienced betrayal. We know unfair. Broken dreams have nearly sunk us. And almost everyone had wondered at some point in our lives, where is God? On a very practical level, Joseph’s life will encourage us to run for or lives from temptation, to serve when we are suffering, and to serve when we are prospering. Finally, Joseph’s story teaches us about how God can take the stones thrown at us with even intent and use them as the bedrock for His good plans for our lives.
