Sometimes bad things happen to good people.
Life teaches us that lesson clearly, and so does the life of Joseph, the son of Jacob.
He was heir to the covenant God had made with his fathers, but he was hated by his brothers and sold into slavery.
He refused to compromise his integrity when approached by Potiphar’s wife and so was cast into prison.
It seemed that the more faithful he was, the more hardship he faced.
But all this adversity was not a sign of God’s disapproval.
In fact, through it all, “the Lord was with him” (Genesis 39:3). Joseph’s life was a manifestation of this important truth: God will not forsake us.
“Following the Savior will not remove all of your trials,” President Dieter F. Uchtdorf taught. “However, it will remove the barriers between you and the help your Heavenly Father wants to give you. God will be with you” (“A Yearning for Home,” Ensign or Liahona, Nov. 2017, 22).
