How Sweet It Is
Genesis 46:28-34 He had sent Judah ahead of him to Joseph to show the way before him in Goshen, and they came into the land of Goshen...
think about it.
Thanks to their relationship with Joseph, Jacob's family received the best in Egypt; what's "the best" you've received because of your relationship with God?
Joseph and Jacob and all of Jacob's family are finally reunited in Genesis 46:28-47:12. This is a very tender passage and I can just picture it in my mind. So now that the family has arrived, Joseph introduces them to Pharaoh and basically takes care of, and provides for, everyone. (Nice job, Joseph!) Joseph could have held a grudge against his brothers and let that influence him in a number of ways. But that's just not what we see--at all. What a great example for us in our relationships.
So what did you see or learn from Joseph about the importance of family, forgiveness and reconciliation? Tami W.
