Genesis 42–50
β€œπ™Άπš˜πš π™ΌπšŽπšŠπš—πš π™Έπš πšžπš—πšπš˜ π™Άπš˜πš˜πšβ€

It had been about 22 years since Joseph was sold into Egypt by his brothers.
He had suffered many trials, including being falsely accused and imprisoned.

When he finally saw his brothers again, Joseph was the governor of all Egypt, second only to the pharaoh.

He could easily have taken revenge on them, and considering what they had done to Joseph, that might seem understandable.

And yet Joseph forgave his brothers.

Not only that, but he helped them see divine purpose in his suffering.

β€œGod meant it unto good” (Genesis 50:20), he told them, because it put him in a position to save β€œall his father’s household” (Genesis 47:12) from famine.

In many ways, Joseph’s life parallels that of Jesus Christ.

Even though our sins caused Him great suffering, the Savior offers forgiveness, delivering all of us from a fate far worse than famine.

Whether we need to receive forgiveness or extend itβ€”at some point we all need to do bothβ€”Joseph’s example points us to the Savior, the true source of healing and reconciliation.
