After Jacob died Joseph’s brothers were scared he might take revenge on them. Joseph’s answer to the brothers showed once again how much faith he had in God. “As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today.” (Genesis 50:20) Joseph had gone thru many undeserved trials in his life, but he always did what was right. Doing the right thing was not always the easiest way for Joseph in the short term, but with faith and patience we see how it turned out. Joseph is a great example for us to see no matter how bleak life may look at times, God knows what is best for us and He is always in control.
